Selected Studies in Botonclilo. Regarding mangroves, taxonomic uncertainties persist despite the fact that there are currently many works that refer to these tree and shrub species; this is due to the fact that the characteristics that separate mangrove species are diffuse as they belong to different families, some of them more related to terrestrial environments.

In addition, identifications in herbaria are erroneous even by specialists.
