Abstract: Investigation on leaf anatomical adaptation of 18 mangrove plant species was carried out. Among the 18 species 13 were dorsiventral and five were isobilateral type. All the species had special stomatal structure and variable cuticle layer to minimize transpiration. Most of the species had succulent leaves with leaf thickness ranging from around 232 to 1363 μm. As an indication of salt secretion, both glandular and non-glandular trichomes were observed in several species. Although presence of single to multilay… Show more

“…( b ) In non-mangrove plants, we observe a similar pattern of traits decoupling between leaf economics and leaf hydraulics, suggested by the largely orthogonal alignment between the two groups of traits (blue vs. green). Traits abbreviation: LTh, leaf thickness ; LMA, leaf dry mass per area ; N mass , leaf mass-based nitrogen concentration ; δ 13 C, leaf carbon isotope composition ; SLA, specific leaf area ; LTD, leaf tissue density ; Tphol, total phenol content ; WST, water storage tissues ; LV dia , leaf minor vein diameter ; LV den , leaf minor vein density ; SL, stomatal guard cell length ; SD, stomatal density ; g wmax, maximum stomatal conductance to water vapor .…”

“…( b ) In contrast with mangrove trees, root traits of non-mangrove plants appear to be orthogonal to leaf economics traits. Abbreviations of the traits are: LTh, leaf thickness ; LMA, leaf dry mass per area ; N mass , leaf mass-based nitrogen concentration ; δ 13 C, leaf carbonisotope composition ; SLA, specific leaf area ; LTD, leaf tissue density ; Tphol, total phenol content ; WST, water storage tissues ; LV dia , leaf minor vein diameter ; LV den , leaf minor vein density ; Diam, root diameter ; ToS, thickness of root tissues outside the stele ; Stele, root stele diameter ; Stele : Diam, stele to root diameter ratio ; SL, stomatal guard cell length ; SD, stomatal density ; g wmax, maximum stomatal conductance to water vapor .…”
