Black Mangrove

(Avicennia germinans), the black mangrove, is characterized by long horizontal roots and root-like projections known as pneumatophores. It grows at elevations slightly higher than the red mangrove where tidal change exposes the roots to air. The pencil-shaped pneumatophores originate from underground horizontal roots projecting from the soil around the tree's trunk, providing oxygen to the underground and underwater root systems.

The black mangrove reaches heights of over 65 feet (20 m) in some locations, however in Florida they are smaller with heights to 50 feet (15 m). Within Florida, they range from the Keys north to Cedar Key on the west coast and St. Augustine on the east coast. Leaves occur opposite of each other along the branches, with upper sides that are shiny and undersides densely covered with hairs. The bark of this mangrove is dark and scaly. Black mangroves blossom in spring and early summer, producing white flowers.

Reproductive adaptations enable seedlings to germinate while still attached to the parent tree. Seeds sprout into 1 inch (2-3 cm), lima bean-shaped propagules. Seed germination occurs while still attached to the parent tree, increasing the chances of survival in this adverse environment.
