Abstract A mangrove swamp was studied (Sep. - Dec. 1986) at Barra de Santiago Ahuachapan, El Salvador. Twenty stations of 1000 m2 each were sampled. A random stratified square method was used with four quadrants of 250 m2 for each station. The analysis included floristic arboreal composition, structural development and zonation pattern. In agreement with the analysis of conglomerates, the identified specimens represent five associations. Rhizophora racemosa and Rhizophora mangle form the outer margin of the subtidal region in continuosly submerged zones. This is followed by associations of Avicennia germinans and R. racemosa in regions near and at a distance from the canal with intermediate inundations. After these are the associations of Avicennia bicolor and A. germinans in non-inundated zones without mud. Finally there are associations of Laguncularia racemosa and A. germinans in regions totally removed from the canals. The productivity of vegetation of the mangrove swamps in terms of the basal area was 30 m2/ha with average heights between 7.3 +/- 2 m and 18 +/- 6.3 m.
