Abstract : Mangrove forest trees grow in severe conditions such as diurnal submersion and high salinity surface and subsurface waters. This study focuses on two species on Mayotte Island, i.e. Ceriops tagal and Rhizophora mucronata, living in the middle range of the coastal mangrove. The seedlings of these trees were planted in a tropical greenhouse with an original pump system built to reproduce the natural tidal effect. The water used by these saplings, in two contrasted salinity conditions, was measured by lysimetry. For adult species, the trees’ water consumption was measured on the field side after being injected with heavy water D2O. Our work shows that this isotopic technique also works in saline conditions, and a water consumption of around 1 ± 0.2 L per day and per centimeter of diameter was found. These values are discussed as follows: the techniques used, the distinctive features of the mangrove trees, and other factors affecting the water absorption.
