Abstract: The study deals with metal concentrations in five mangrove species Rhizophora mucronata, Avicennia officinalis, Bruguiera cylindrica, Ceriops decandra, and Xylocarpus granatum with regard to the heavy metals like Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn and major elements like Na, K, Ca. The metallic concentrations were analysed in sediment samples collected from surrounding root zone of mangrove species and in the leaves of the same plant. Avicennia officinalis accumulated high concentrations of all the metals analysed, followed by X. granatum, B. cylindrica, R. mucronata and C. decandra. The samples collected during the monsoon period (26th August 1996) showed high metallic concentrations than the samples of post-monsoon (10th January 1997) and pre-monsoon (11th April 1996) period.
