The River Mangrove (Aegiceras corniculatum) is one of our most important plants, they are essential for stabilizing creek banks. In the past mangroves have been removed from our creeks so that private docks or buildings can be built along the river, this contributes to the erosion and pollution problems that we face. Mangroves excretes salt crystals through the leaves as a byproduct of growing in salty and brackish water.
