The vegetation presents adaptations to the environment, such as arboreal and shrubby plants with horizontally expanding roots, allowing strong anchoring in the muddy substrate, vertically expanding roots due to low substrate oxygenation, leaves with glands to eliminate excess salts, and leaves that can have a thick cuticle to reduce water loss by evaporation. The described characteristics refer to plants adapted to the biome.
