Abstract: Marked differences were recorded in structure and composition of mangroves from the islands in the eastern and western sectors of Sunderbans in relation to the topography. Avicennia sp. and Aegiceras sp. preferred low lying areas towards the western and eastern sides of Sunderbans respectively. Ceriops-Phoenix association was frequent in high land areas and Excoecaria and Ceriops decandra occurred over the entire forest with different salinity and topography. Association patterns of different mangroves were shown in profile diagrams and ideal ecotonal mangrove communities were suggested for reclaimed regions.
