Mangrove leaves, sediment, and excrementfrom the mangrove crab Ucidescordatus from the coastal areas of theBragança peninsula in North Brazil wereanalysed to determine suitable biomarkersfor mangrove-derived organic matter. Leavesof Rhizophora mangle (red mangrove),the dominant species in the area, werecharacterised by high amounts ofβ-amyrin, germanicol, taraxerol, andlupeol. Avicennia germinans (blackmangrove) mainly contained betulin, lupeol,and β-sitosterol, whereas significantquantities of… CONTINUE READING
