Mangrove forest, Shark River Slough, Everglades National Park

Detailed Description

Tangled web of prop roots from red mangrove trees, intermixed with black mangroves and white mangroves farther back in the forest.  Mangrove forests cover much of the southwestern coastal region of Everglades National Park.  The red mangroves are the most salinity tolerant and grow with their prop roots in the water or within the range of high tide.
