Definition: Avicennia tomentosa
Mangrove \Man"grove\, n. [Malay manggi-manggi.]
1. (Bot.) The name of one or two trees of the genus
Rhizophora (Rhizophora Mangle, and Rhizophora mucronata
, the last doubtfully distinct) inhabiting muddy
shores of tropical regions, where they spread by emitting
a["e]rial roots, which fasten in the saline mire and
eventually become new stems. The seeds also send down a
strong root while yet attached to the parent plant.
Note: The fruit has a ruddy brown shell, and a delicate white
pulp which is sweet and eatable. The bark is
astringent, and is used for tanning leather. The black
and the white mangrove (Avicennia nitida and
Avicennia tomentosa) have much the same habit.
2. (Zo["o]l.) The mango fish.
