Un pneumatophore est une excroissance aérienne des racines de certains arbres ayant pour fonction les échanges gazeux quand ils sont impossibles pour les racines dans les zones humides. La mangrove est un écosystème mi à mal par la pression de l’homme. Pourtant son role est capital tant pour la bonne santé du lagon que celle des plages et des iles. Pouponnières, rempart contre l’érosion et l’envasement, les mangroves doivent etres impérativement protégés.
