DE LA LANZA ESPINO, Guadalupe; SANCHEZ SANTILLAN, Norma; SORANI, Valentino  and  BOJORQUEZ TAPIA, José Luis. Características geológicas, hidrológicas y del manglar en la planicie costera de Nayarit, México. Invest. Geog [online]. 1996, n.32, pp.33-54. ISSN 2448-7279.

The different geoforms of the coastal zone are consecuence of environmental changes (hydrology, climate, marine hydrodynamic and organic growth). The coastal plain of Nayarit is an example of the confluence of these factors which result in saltmarshes, lagoons, deltas, meanders, channels, swamps, all of which are bordered by high mangrove density. These characteristics coastal plain structures are exploited for human activities. In this paper the geologic, and hydrologic evolution, as well as the mangrove vegetation distribution was analized, using a LANDSAT image, which covers 108 113 ha, with heterogeneus species distribution and predominance of Laguncularia racemosa followed by Rhizophora mangle.
