Attempts were made to quantify the carbon and nitrogen pools in a monospecific and pioneer mangrove stand of Kandelia obovata Sheue, Liu & Yong, Okinawa Island, Japan. The leaf C and N concentrations on a leaf area basis decreased with increasing PPFD (Photosysthetic Photon Flux Density). The total C and N stocks in foliage were estimated as 3.55 Mg ha–1 and 0.105 Mg ha–1, respectively. The bark (45.6–48.6% for C and 0.564–0.842% for N) contained significantly higher amount of C (P < 0.05) and… CONTINUE READING
