The floristic zonation is visible in spite of mangrove samples: Sonneratia alba at the level of the lower Lake; then Rhizophora mucronata and Bruguiera gymnorrhiza; Ceriops tagal; finally Avicennia marina at the level of the rocky masses located at the base of the cliff. Sarodrano hinges at the dead cliff that forms the lower part of the great escarpment that limits the Causse de Belamotra. It is surmounted by dunes with little vegetation. It is thought to have been established late 2,000 years ago B.P. (Battistini, 1995). On the cliff side, freshwater resurgence can be observed. The mangrove develops there over a width of 150 meters between the Bina cave and the Grande Source. At the edge of the sandy spit, one can see the remarkable homogeneity of the mangrove: Avicennia predominates but leaves the place to Ceriops in the undergrowth.
