Mangrove or Nypa Palm

Mangrove, Nipa, or Nypa Palm growing in brackish water

These are images of the Mangrove, Nipa, or Nypa palm (Nypa fruticans) which is the only palm thought to be fully adapted to growing in the mangrove biome. It is shown here growing in soft mud under brackish water at the edge of Freshwater Lake (one of the Centenary lakes) at Cairns Botanic Gardens in Queensland, Australia.
