Soal Reading UNBK SMA/SMK dan Kunci Jawaban-Paket A


This text is for questions 16 to 18.

A mangrove is a tropical marine tree or shrub of the genius Rhizhopora. Mangroves have special aerial roots and salt-filtering taproots that enable them to thrive in brackish water (brackish water is salty, but not as salty as seawater).

There are several species of mangroves trees found all over the world. Some prefer more salinity, while others like to be very close to a large fresh water source (such as river). Some prefer areas that are sheltered from waves. Some species have their roots covered with seawater everyday during high tide. Other species grow on dry land, but are still part of the ecosystem.

Mangroves need to keep their trunk and leaves above the surface of the water. Yet they also need to be firmly attached to the ground so they are not moved by waves. There are three types of mangrove roots that play an important role for it, the support roots which directly pierce the soil, the level-growing roots which twist upwards and downwards; with the upward twists emerging on the water surface, and the level-growing roots whose downward twists (sub-roots) appear on the water surface.

The part of a root that appears above the water flows oxygen to the plant under water surface. As the soil begins to build up, these roots produce additional roots that become embedded in the soil.
