Structure and Adaptation

Tropical Rainforests and Mangroves

This clip compares how tropical rainforests and mangroves have adapted to their environments. We explore how despite sharing the same climatic conditions, mangroves face an additional challenges because of their coastal location. We see examples of how rainforests have adapted to their warm, damp environment including: the forest structure, drip tip leaves, lianas, buttress roots, epiphytes. This is then compared with how mangroves have adapted to survive in brackish water and waterlogged soil, i.e. through root adaptations. Filmed in a variety of rainforest and mangrove locations around the world.
