Mangrove swamps are amazingly diverse! Mangrove trees grow at the edge of the land, by the sea. Their roots grow down from their tree trunks, and they thrive in salty water. Birds, fish, crabs, and even oysters all flourish in and around these swamps. This book, part of the "Wonders of the Sea" series, includes well-written text about plants and animals that live in mangrove swamps, including the food chain, both human and natural threats, and how to protect these awesome habitats.
