An attempt has been made to establish a correlation between salt concentration, ABA productionand Mangroves species. Mangroves are salt tolerant (halophytic) species that allows them to liveunder high salt conditions. Vivipary is the common feature found is Mangroves. It is revealed thatdrought and salt stresses induces ABA biosynthesis through transcriptional regulation of ABAbiosynthetic genes thus can be able to convert vivipary to nonvivipary in Mangroves. The studymay lead to the significant outcome of the proposed work. Further the work can act as a basis toscreen viviparous and non viviparous varieties of mangroves in different pharmacological aspects.
