Mangrove are woody trees or shrubs that grow in coastal habitats for which the term mangrove swamp also would apply.
Mangrove plants occupy shallow water and intertidal zones in tropical and subtropical coastal regions, usually where protected from direct wave action.
The roots of the mangrove plants stabilize the sand and mud.
They also filter out phosphates, nitrates and other chemicals from the water.
