Abstract: Mangroves constitute a unique community of plants found throughout the tropical and subtropical zones of the world. They are
are particularly well developed in Southeast Asia, especially in Indonesia, the Philippines and Peninsula Malaysia. In Singapore isolated patches of mangroves can still belfound though they are disappearing at a rapid rate. Mangroves offer many opportunities for classroom and field investigations of related aspects of ecology
and plant geography,. Such an integrated approach is encouraged at 'A' level and should be of particular interest to pre-university students. Moreover, the mangrove habitat is a highly specialised one differing in many ways from other natural vegetation types in the tropics. Thus mangroves serve as a good case study of local
plant geography.
