Caption: Mangrove roots exposed at low tide in a tropical rainforest. Mangrove trees grow in shallow, muddy water along sheltered tropical and subtropical shorelines and estuaries. They have tangled masses of roots which help to trap mud particles and bind them together. These are vertical breathing roots (pneumatophores). At low tide, they are exposed and collect oxygen from the air to compensate for the low levels of oxygen in the swamp's soil. Mangrove swamps are important habitats for fish, insects and birds. Photographed in Queensland, Australia.
