Mangroves are woody plants which form the dominant vegetation in tidal, saline wetlands along tropical and subtropical coasts. The current knowledge concerning the most striking feature of mangroves i.e., their unique ability to tolerate high salinity is summarized in the present review. In this review, we shall discuss recent studies that have focused on morphological, anatomical, physiological, biochemical, molecular and genetic attributes associated with the response to salinity, some of…

Response of mangrove plant species to a saline gradient: Implications for ecological restoration
TLDR
The potential of using mangrove species for rehabilitation of high saline environments by revealing the capacities of species to remove salt from sediment is investigated by revealing A. marina to be the most efficient in retaining salt within plant tissues while C. tagal is superior to R. mucronata but inferior to A.marina in performing this function.
Molecular adaptation to salinity fluctuation in tropical intertidal environments of a mangrove tree Sonneratia alba
TLDR
This study elucidates the mechanism of high-salt adaptation in mangroves at the whole-transcriptome level by salt gradient experimental treatments and reveals that several candidate genes (including salt-related genes, TF-encoding genes, and PSGs) and major pathways are involved in adaptation to high-Salt environments.
Mangrove root: adaptations and ecological importance
TLDR
This review briefly depicts adaptive strategies of mangrove roots with respect to anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and also the major advances recently made at the genetic and genomic levels.
Adaptive Mechanisms of Halophytes and Their Potential in Improving Salinity Tolerance in Plants

TLDR
The potential of improving salt tolerance in crop plants by introducing candidate genes related to antiporters, ion transporters, antioxidants, and defense proteins from halophytes for conserving sustainable agriculture in salinity-prone areas is discussed.
Salinity Tolerance in Plants: Mechanisms and Regulation of Ion Transport
Life presumably arose in the primeval oceans with similar or even greater salinity than the present ocean, so the ancient cells were designed to withstand salinity. However, the immediate ancestors
Genetic and molecular mechanisms underlying mangrove adaptations to intertidal environments
TLDR
This review provides up-to-date consolidated information on the genetic, epigenetic, and molecular regulation of mangrove adaptive traits.
Current Trends in Salinity and Waterlogging Tolerance
TLDR
Integration of all the key omics approaches should be another vital target to research groups working across the globe to further progress towards the ultimate goal of developing salt tolerant crop varieties without compromising yield.
Salt tolerance and exclusion in the mangrove plant Avicennia marina in relation to root apoplastic barriers
TLDR
A barrier property of suberization in dealing with salt exclusion in mangroves, a moderate salt pre-treatment may benefit plant withstanding high salinity is suggested.
Distribution, Ecology and Ecophysiology of Mangroves in Pakistan
TLDR
Information gathered with the help of past and present researches would help in the restoration and methodical care of the mangroves along the coast of Pakistan besides developing them as source of commercial products and spot for a burgeoning ecotourism industry.

SALT/WATER RELATIONSHIPS IN MANGROVES
TLDR
The aim of the present review is to summarize the current knowledge concerning the mechanisms underlying the most striking feature of mangroves—their unique ability to obtain water from the surrounding sea.
Carbon Gain in Relation to Water Use: Photosynthesis in Mangroves
“Mangrove” is an ecological term referring to a taxonomically diverse association of woody trees and shrubs that form the dominant vegetation in tidal, saline wetlands along tropical and subtropical
Generation and analysis of expressed sequence tags from the mangrove plant, Acanthus ebracteatus Vahl
TLDR
Some of these clones, including putative mannitol dehydrogenase, plastidic aldolase, secretory peroxidase, ascorbate peroxIDase, and vacuolar H+-ATPase, may be related to osmotic homeostasis, ionic homeostasia, and detoxification.
Salinity tolerance in halophytes.
TLDR
Halophytes, plants that survive to reproduce in environments where the salt concentration is around 200 mm NaCl or more, constitute about 1% of the world's flora and research should be concentrated on a number of 'model' species that are representative of the various mechanisms that might be involved in tolerance.
Experimental assessment of salinity tolerance of Ceriops tagal seedlings and saplings from the Indus delta, Pakistan
TLDR
This result suggests that C. tagal is almost as salt tolerant as Avicennia marina but would not be able to tolerate a sudden major shift in salinity, and could be used to rehabilitate inter-tidal areas, which receive a regular supply of fresh water.
Osmotic adaption in Australian mangroves
TLDR
Young and old leaves of twenty-three mangrove species from northern Queensland (Australia) were investigated for their mineral ion and organic solute content and a negative correlation between pinitol and SO 4 2− was found in the case of Ceriops tagal.
Physiological responses of the mangrove Rhizophora mangle grown in the absence and presence of NaCl.
TLDR
Energy-dispersive X-ray microprobe analyses on root vacuoles of control plants reveal Na+ preference, on those of salt treated plants a strong K+ preference and Vacuolar K+ concentrations are neither affected by NaCl nor do they vary across the root radius.
Arbuscular mycorrhizal relations of mangrove plant community at the Ganges river estuary in India
TLDR
Intensity of AM colonization varied both with the species and situations of their occurrence, being more intense and also more extensive in less saline dry ridge mangrove than in more saline formative and developed swamp mangroves.
Salt uptake and shoot water relations in mangroves
Abstract The effects of salinity on water relations and ion concentrations were investigated in seedlings of the mangroves Avicennia alba , Bruguiera gymnorrhiza , Heritiera littoralis and Xylocarpus
Photosynthetic and Stomatal Responses of the Grey Mangrove, Avicennia marina, to Transient Salinity Conditions.
TLDR
Stomatal conductance changed such that the intercellular CO(2) concentration measured under normal atmospheric conditions occurred in the transition between the lower, linear and upper nonlinear portions of the A(c(i)) curve, indicating a reduction in the capacity for CO( 2) assimilation which recovered upon return to the original salinity.
