This study was conducted to assess the species diversity and carbon sequestration potential of a natural mangrove stand in Botoc, Pinabacdao, Samar, the Philippines. Using the quadrat sampling technique, 12 plots with a size of 100 m2 were established to facilitate inventory and measurement of trees. Shannon-Wiener index and allometric equations were used to determine species diversity, and biomass and tree carbon storage, respectively. The community's species diversity (H′ = 1.6365) was very… CONTINUE READING
