The blossoms of Rhizophora stylosa are small and inconspicuous as all blossoms of all Rhizophora species. In the IWP region, only three species of Rhizophora—R. apiculata Blume, R. mucronata Lam., and R. stylosa Griff. The specific epithet stylosa is from the Latin meaning "stylus form", referring to the flower. Flowers, leaves and a ripe fruit Photograph by: Fagg, M. Image credit to Australian National Botanic Gardens. These tiny flowers are wind-pollinating, producing lots of powdery pollen and no fragrance or nectar.

Members of this family are characterized by being woody, having opposite or whorled leaves, and producing flowers with nectary disc and typically five petals. Rhizophora is pan-tropical; Bruguiera, Ceriops, and Kandelia have an Indo-Malayan dis- tribution. 435-443 ISSN: 1747-0765 In New Guinea, it is used for making handles for high impact tools such as hammers, axes, and picks.The caterpillars of several Lepidoptera feed on the plant, including:      • the Narcissus Jewel Hypochrysops narcissus;      • the moth Adoxophyes templana;      • the Copper Jewel Hypochrysops apelles;       • the Four-spotted Cup Moth Doratifera quadriguttata; and      • the moth Doratifera stenora.

There are usually 8 stamens. mangrove flora: bakau (rhizophora stylosa) See also ultrafiltration of salt, vivipary and prop roots as adaptations to the mangroves. The lenticels are air-filled spaces that connect with underground root structures. aureus, the variety has golden yellow flowers including sepals, petals, ovary and style. The bark is dark brown to black. The fruits are ovoid to pear-shaped and measure up to 4 cm (2 in) long. The main trunk is erect and covered by rough, reddish-brown bark. At the root level, Rhizophora use a process called ultrafiltration to exclude salt. When it hits land, it grows more roots to anchor itself upright, and then more leaves. This mangrove has stilt roots emerging in arches from the lower trunk, and extra prop roots often grow down from the branches. Rhizophora is from the Greek ριζοφορος (rhizophoros), root-bearing; stylosa is from στυλος (stylos), a pillar used as a support. Sal-voza), and together they characterize most stands of IWP stilt mangroves. Aerial roots growing from the tree´s limbs also help the plant breathe. Indeed, it is probably Rhizophora that the average North Queenslander pictures when he thinks of mangroves, as the seedlings are seen half buried in the sand and mud of most mangrove forests. General Information Rhizophora mucronata is a slow-growing, much-branched, evergreen tree growing up to 27 metres tall, with a bole 50 - 70 cm in diameter[303. [5], Rhizophora stylosa grows up to 15 metres (50 ft) tall with a trunk diameter of up to 25 centimetres (10 in). The range of R. mucronata is the widest of all IWP species, extending from east Africa, where it oc- [2][5][6] Its habitat is sandy beaches and coral terraces on seashores. PLoS One. Flowering of Rhizophora mangle varies by location. Schimp. Plant-water relations of the mangrove species Rhizophora stylosa: a unique story January 2014 Communications in agricultural and applied biological sciences 79(1):57-63 Charcoal making with this timber is carried on commercially in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Central America, and this, together with the extraction of tannin from the bark, has been responsible for large-scale mangrove removal and degradation. It is also used in some industrial applications, like metal production.Large sizes of timber are not often available, due to the relative smallness of the trees; but the grain is straight, strong, and extremely resistant to insects and rot. occur naturally with wide and overlapping distributions (Duke et al., 2002). Their bark is reddish or pale grey.The opposite leaves are obovate to elliptic, 6 – 14 cm long, 3 – 8 cm wide, thick, glossy and glabrous, the lower surface usually spotted with reddish corky glands. Rhizophora apiculata Blume needed 2 and a half years to develop folwer [17]. All species have the same basic floral structure, but field observations demonstrate a wide variety of pollina- tion mechanisms. This mangrove has stilt roots emerging in arches from the lower trunk, and extra prop roots often grow down from the branches.The growth habits of this genus are more typical of mangroves than those of their cousin, the White-flowered Black Mangrove. Species. R. stylosa has a longer style.

Rhizophora mucronata stylosa (Griff.) Author: Iimura, Yasuo; Kinjo, Kazutoshi; Kondo, Miyuki; Ohtsuka, Toshiyuki Source: Soil science and plant nutrition 2019 v.65 no.5 pp. 4: … It is also exploited in some places for woodchip production, often on a large scale. Each inflorescence carries between 2 and 8 flowers. These hybrid trees possess intermediate characteristics between two parental species. Leaves are yellowish green with a pale yellow midrib, while Of these, R. apiculata and R. mucronata form the dominant members of the community and commonly distributed in mangrove areas while R. stylosa … (2013). Metabolites and bioactivities of Rhizophoraceae including Rhizophora stylosa have only been reviewed by Nebula et al. Rhizophora mangle develops compound inflorescence, the flowers arise from the axil. Healthy roots, stems, leaves, hypocotyls and flowers of R. stylosa (Rhizophoraceae) and roots, stems, leaves and flowers of R. mucronata were collected from a specific location (110°32′-110°37′ E, 19°51′-20°01′ N) in Dong Zhai Gang-Mangrove Garden on Hainan Island, China. Rhizophoramucronatavar.alokii (Rhizophoraceae), a new variety of Rhizophora from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India, is described and illustrated. Rhizophora mucronata is encountered in frost-free, summer rainfall regions in mangrove forest swamps, along the coast line of Eastern Cape, from Nahoon, the Mngazana Estuary, with few populations at Port St Johns on the Umzimvubu River, few populations at the eMzimpunzi River Mouth in Mbotyi, to the KwaZulu-Natal coast line, to Kosi Bay in the north. It is believed that they store any salt which manages to enter the plant in old leaves that are later shed.The Red Mangrove, a small tree up to 8 m tall, occurs low in the intertidal zone, where its roots are submerged at high tides. Rhizophora stylosa. In Greek, Rhizophora Stylosa means “root bearer”. They are also self-pollinating.The fruits are 2 – 4 cm long, and the viviparous seedlings are usually 20 – 50 cm long before they fall.The timber is dark red and fine-grained, quite difficult to work, but capable of a high finish. Rhizophora x lamarckii (below): style long like R. stylosa; sepal width broad like R. apiculata. Rhizophora stylosa develops compound inflorescence, the flowers arise from the axil.
