Abstract: Soil and vegetation of mangrove forests in some islands of eastern and western side of the Sunderbans were surveyed. Physico-chemical characters of soils in both sides were basically similar except in conductivity, soil texture and NPK ratio. Distribution of mangrove species in the two sides was however different. Western islands were dominated by Avicennia sp. and Acanthus ilicifolius while the eastern side was dominated by Aegiceras majus although density of Ceriops sp. and Excoecaria agallocha was considerably high.
