how can you tell it s a red mangrove
identified by their prominent prop root structure

where are they found
Where are they found…
  • Tend to be located along coastlines and in estuarine areas of the tropics and subtropics.
  • In the United States the red mangrove can be found along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts in the warmer areas
  • Not found where there is a frost
what are they good for
What are they good for…
  • habitat for other organisms
  • nursery for juvenile fish

they are also good for
They are also good for…
  • a buffer zone for wave action for the inland it borders
  • The root structures slow down water by just being in the way
the most interesting thing about red mangroves is
The most Interesting thing about Red Mangroves is
  • It has healing properties
  • In the past, different cultures have used the bark of the red mangrove to treat sore throats and against hemoptysis (coughing up blood) in pulmonary tuberculosis.
  • Other medical uses with the aqueous bark extracts are for wound healing and gastric antiulcer effects
what about today
What about today
  • one study Marrero et al. studied the different properties that the aqueous bark extract contained
  • The study showed that the red mangrove contained an anti-flammatory mechanism involving eicosonoids cascade and showed the healing properties of the red mangrove on in vitro tests.
another study a little more in depth
Another Study a little more in depth…
  • Studied the effect of the aqueous bark on rats
  • tested its ability to inhibit gastric excretion and to see if it protected gastroduodenal mucus.
  • Induced ulcers and other conditions to see how the control and variable groups of rats were affected.
  • Red mangrove significantly decreased the damage done by the induced gastric mucosal.
  • Another possibility: tannins
other studies were done
Other studies were done
  • Proved antiseptic properties in rabbit’s wounds and sutured injuries and in calves open wounds.
one step further
One step further..
  • They used humans…volunteers of course!
  • Control group with mercurochrome
  • Subjects with the red mangrove.
  • The results showed that there was a greater reduction in injury size when the patient was treated with the red mangrove.
  • Also time of recovery was quicker.
