Only two mangrove species have been found in Dominica so far.
The white mangrove Laguncularia racemosa and the black
mangrove Avicennia germinans. The white mangrove is found
in the swampy areas east of the Cabrits, while the black
mangrove is found along the lower supralittoral zone of Bout
Sable near La Plaine. None of these form stands or
forests as the suitable terrain and oceanographic parameters for
such a development is absent in Dominica.
some of the trees lining the mouths of slow flowing rivers like
the Indian River, or Hodges River, are called "mangroves",
but these are in/near fresh water only like Pterocarpus officinalis
