You Asked for It: Mangroves

Posted by Laurie Frost on June 29, 2010

A reader requested a hi-res shot of a mangrove, so I had a look around. On each of these sites there are at least a few — and often many — more images to choose from.

Here are a few from the US Fish & Wildlife Service’s National Digital Library:

WO3690 Black Mangrove Swamp in Texas

 The next ones are from NOAA:

 This one is from the National Park Service’s Everglades site. Look under media, imagery, habitats.

Another site to look as is the US Geological Survey’s Gallery.
