Aegiceras corniculatum (L.) Blanco

Aegiceras corniculatum (L.) Blanco. is widespread and common in the tropics. It is threatened by the loss of mangrove habitat throughout its range, primarily due to extraction and coastal development. It is also likely that changes in climate due to global warming will further affect these parts of the range. Although there are overall range declines in many areas, they are not enough to reach any of the thresholds.
