According to FAO (1952) mangrove is defined as trees and bushes growing below the high water level of spring tides.
Mangrove includes a large variety of plant families, that adapt to the particular environment. Tomlinson (1986) classifies mangrove species into 3(Three) groups, i.e major component, minor component and mangrove associates
