    Adaptations to a flooding land.

    Discussion in 'Research' started by Tales, Mar 8, 2009.

    Ok I wonder what kind of adaptations would the animals need on an environment I plan to make in a fiction. But it's rather believable as far as I can see.

    The island is rather small like the offshore islands of Singapore but the whole island is in fact a very big mangrove swamp. Every time the tide rises at least 90% of the island is submerged in water. The flowering plants here are mostly mangroves and small shrubs and saltwater grasses.

    Lots of amphibians and tree climbing animals, perching or sea birds too

    err but salt water? for amphibians?

    But I am rather worried that seagrasses can't sprout between in the sparse islets in this story. [

    OK here's what I have in mind.

    here's a diagram of my habitat. Each islet is of random size and has mangrove growing on it. in between there are wide spaces which are exposed at low tide and I am asking if seagrasses can grow here.

    Anyone can help?
