Ceratopteridoideae is one of the five subfamilies in the Pteridaceae family of ferns.
A fern is a member of a group of vascular plants that reproduce via spores and have neither seeds nor flowers.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN; officially International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources) is an international organization working in the field of nature conservation and sustainable use of natural resources.
The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species (also known as the IUCN Red List or Red Data List), founded in 1964, has evolved to become the world's most comprehensive inventory of the global conservation status of biological species.
A least concern (LC) species is a species which has been categorized by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as evaluated but not qualified for any other category.
Leptosporangiate ferns are the largest group of living ferns, including some 11000 species worldwide.
A mangrove is a shrub or small tree that grows in coastal saline or brackish water.
Metroxylon sagu, the true sago palm, is a species of palm in the genus Metroxylon, native to tropical southeastern Asia, namely Indonesia (western New Guinea, and the Moluccas), Papua New Guinea, Malaysia (both Peninsular Malaysia and Sarawak) and possibly also the Philippines (though may have been introduced there).
Plants are mainly multicellular, predominantly photosynthetic eukaryotes of the kingdom Plantae.
The order Polypodiales encompasses the major lineages of polypod ferns, which comprise more than 80% of today's fern species.
Pteridaceae is a family of ferns in the order Polypodiales., including some 1150 known species in ca 45 genera (depending on taxonomic opinions), divided over five subfamilies.
A pteridophyte is a vascular plant (with xylem and phloem) that disperses spores (and lacks seeds).
Rhizophora mucronata (loop-root mangrove, red mangrove or Asiatic mangrove) is a species of mangrove found on coasts and river banks in East Africa and the Indo-Pacific region.
Salinity is the saltiness or amount of salt dissolved in a body of water (see also soil salinity).
In biology, a species is the basic unit of classification and a taxonomic rank, as well as a unit of biodiversity, but it has proven difficult to find a satisfactory definition.
A sporangium (pl., sporangia) (modern Latin, from Greek σπόρος (sporos) ‘spore’ + αγγείον (angeion) ‘vessel’) is an enclosure in which spores are formed.
