Guo et al. Comparative Transcriptomic Analysis in Rhizophoraceae genes may be crucial for increasing the capability of stress tolerance (i.e., defense against salt and oxidative stress) and development of adaptive traits (i.e., vivipary) of Rhizophoraceae mangroves, and thus plays an important role in their adaptation to the stressful intertidal environments.
