Differences in biogeochemical characteristics between three Rhizophorastylosa and three Avicenniamarina forests were examined in different coastal settings of arid Western Australia. Decomposition rates of sediment organic matter correlated with temperature, but did not differ significantly between Rhizophora (range: 46.5–52.9 mmol C m−2 per day) and Avicennia (range: 28.5–48.3 mmol C m−2 per day) forests. There were, however, clear differences in the dominance of specific carbon oxidation… CONTINUE READING
