SUMMARY The mangrove ecosystems which surround the La Mancha la- goon in Veracruz, Mexico, are characterized by the high com- plexity of its landscapes in conditions of adequate conservation. This work deals on the structure and composition of the geocomplexes of this area. The use of structural-genetic and his- torical-evolutionary principles permitted the survey, classification and cartography of mangrove landscapes at a detailed scale. It was possible to differentiate 28 inferior units, six intermediate units and five of a superior order, all at the scale of 1:25 000. The results suggested that the physical-geographical approach complex could be of great use for the inventory, characterization and cartography of mangroves at a detailed scale, providing in- formation on the genetic type of the relief, litological composi- tion, periodicity of flooding of surface areas, vegetative cover and soils. This information is invaluable for the environmental planning and preservation of these ecosystems.

    • ...The lagoon is surrounded by a mangrove forest that covers a total surface of 335 ha (Hernández-Trejo 2009) (Fig. 2). This forest is highly heterogeneous with many plant associations, ranging from monospecific stands, to patches with a more diverse composition, which depends on local hydrologic and geomorphological conditions (Hernández-Trejo et al. 2006)...
    • ...As flooding becomes less regular and lasts for shorter periods of time, mangrove forest stands are shorter and monospecific (Hernández-Trejo et al. 2006)...
    • ...In addition, Hernández-Trejo et al. (2006) observed that mangrove forest height and diversity increased with an increase of flooding frequency, depth, and duration...
