• Extreme environment

    Mangrove plants grow in extreme

    intertidal envrionment with high salintiy,

    hypoxia, ultraviolet radiation

    and frequent seawater inundation.

  • Stilt roots

    Stilt roots sunk deep into the earth,

    forming a solid support,

    and can make the mangrove firmly fixed on the beach.

  • Vivipary

    Developing viviparous propagules

    is interpreted as a mechanism

    to protect the embryo

    from the deleterious effects of

    high salt concentrations until maturity

  • Salt glands

    Many species of mangrove possess salt glands

    in their leaves. mangroves and their associates

    have been classified into three groups:

    (1) salt excluders, (2) salt secretors and (3) salt accumulators

  • Extreme environment

  • Stilt roots

  • Vivipary

  • Salt glands


The specific objectives of this website is to provide a relational database for mangrove species researched and sequenced by Shi lab. Data available from here includes :

  • Complete genome sequence of 3 mangrove species along with gene product information, gene expresstion, including Avicennia marina, Rhizophora apiculata and Sonneratia alba
  • Transcriptome sequence of other mangrove species as well as their terrestrial plants
  • A fact sheet for each mangrove plant species including basic information with photographs and distribution data
  • This site also provide extensive linkouts from our data page to other mangrove resources.
