Mangrove forests- a most bio-diverse ecosystem on earth

mangroves are the plant that survives high salinity, strong wind velocity, high temperature and muddy anaerobic soil.  it constitute a bridge between terrestrial and marine eco system. mangroves prevents coastal erosion and it enhance the fishery and serve as a food web. At the Lord Nataraja temple at Chidambaram in Tamil Nadu, the mangrove tree Excoecaria agallocha, locally known as Thaillai, has been worshipped as a temple tree- Sthala vruksha. mangrove forests act as a shelter belt against cyclones. so my friends please preserve this and save this trees and plants. stop deforestation we are destroying many trees that are very useful to the environment. what we achieve through deforestation is nothing, only we are facing global warming.
