Indus River Delta-Arabian Sea mangroves

WWF Abstract

Mangroves provide a transition from the fresh inland waters to the salty Arabian Sea. These trees are well adapted to surviving in a saline environment. Their roots keep large amounts of damaging salt from entering the tree's system, and their leaves can get rid of the salt that does manage to enter.
