|Action: changed name from "Avicennia sp." to "Rhizophora mangle
| ||"Avicennia germinans, one species of mangrove commonly found at the location of the photo, has salt-encrusted, pale gray-green leaves, small (5-6 mm L) creamy two-lipped, 5-lobed tubular flowers. Avicennia spp. do not have prop roots but instead are characterized by spreading roots with pneumatophores sticking up out of the mud. Avicennia fruit are gen.1 cm L, and ovoid. Rhizophora mangle flowers have large, shiny green lanceolate leaves. Flowers are c. 1.5 cm D with 4 creamy, hairy, lanceolate petals. The fruit enlongates and the seed germinates while on the plant, resulting in a propagule up to 20 cm L. Please refer to http://www.oceanoasis.org/fieldguide for reviewed descriptions of the different species of mangrove found in Baja California."|
