Mangrove trees constitute the very core of the coastal ecological cycle. They are uniquely adapted to living in salty water and provide protection from coastal erosion. Fungus that grows on the dead, fallen leaves provides nourishment for small crustaceans and birds. Some of the trees reach heights of up to 85 feet (25 meters.)
