- Halophytes are plants that can tolerate high salt levels they are commonly found in areas such as estuaries.

Grey Mangroves
Salt Exclusion: Special glands in the mangroves can actively exclude the salt from the water, so that the water absorbed has a lower salt concentration than the water in the environment.
Salt Accumulation: Salt is accumulated in old leaves that drop off, so that the salt is out of the plant’s system
Salt Excretion: Salt can be excreted from the underside of the leaves of the mangrove plants; salt crystals form under the leaves.

Salt Accumulation: This plant stores its excess salt in swollen leaf bases, which drop off, ridding the plant of salt.
