TitleThree more Mangrove trees growing locally in nature in freshwater
JournalBlumea - Biodiversity, Evolution and Biogeography of Plants
AbstractIn Christmas Island (Indian Ocean) the mangrove trees Bruguiera gymnorrhiza (L.) Sav., B. sexangula (Lour.) Poir. (Rhizophoraceae) and Heritiera littoralis Ait. (Sterculiaceae) are found inland near freshwater springs at some 20-30 m altitude, far from the beach. It is concluded that the inland stands of these trees came into being during the upheaval of the island.
There is some doubt about the specific distinction of Heritiera globosa Kostermans from H. littoralis.
