ABSTRACT Although no mangrove species are native to the Hawaiian Archipelago, both Rhizophora mangle and Bruguiera sexangula were introduced and have become naturalized. Rhizophora mangle has spread to almost every major Hawaiian island, but B. sexangula has established only on O‘ahu, where it was intentionally introduced. To examine the possibility that differences in propagule characteristics maintain these patterns of distribution, we first reviewed the literature on surface currents around… Expand
Establishment and Biomass Allocation of Black and Red Mangroves: Response to Propagule Flotation Duration and Seedling Light Availability
TLDR
This study suggests that mangroves will do best after short distance-dispersal events and that the plastic nature of mangrove biomass partitioning is highly advantageous to establishment in the salt marsh because of the varying canopy conditions that seedlings may encounter. Expand
Are mangroves in the tropical Atlantic ripe for invasion? Exotic mangrove trees in the forests of South Florida
TLDR
It is argued that the species-depauperate nature of tropical Atlantic mangrove forests and close taxonomic relatives in the more species-rich Indo-Pacific region result in the susceptibility of tropicalAtlantic mangroves forests to invasion by Indo- Pacific mangroVE species. Expand
Mangrove expansion and population structure at a planted site, East London, South Africa
Avicennia marina (Forrsk.) Vierh. was planted in 1969 at Nahoon Estuary, East London, followed a few years later by the planting of Bruguiera gymnorrhiza (L.) Lam. and Rhizophora mucronata (L.) amongExpand
Viviparous mangrove propagules of Ceriops tagal and Rhizophora mucronata, where both Rhizophoraceae show different dispersal and establishment strategies
TLDR
Two co-living species of the same family have different dispersal and establishment strategies, thereby contributing to the understanding of their local and global distribution and of the species-specific dynamics within mangrove forests. Expand
The role of wind in hydrochorous mangrove propagule dispersal
TLDR
Important mechanistic insight is provided into the effect of wind on hydrochorous mangrove propagule dispersal, thereby yielding an essential step towards the construction and optimization of (particle-based) hydrodynamic dispersal models. Expand
Modeling local effects on propagule movement and the potential expansion of mangroves and associated fauna: testing in a sub-tropical lagoon
TLDR
It is demonstrated that local differences in hydrodynamics and habitat distributions influence the broader regional rates of spread likely to occur with climate change. Expand
Propagule Dispersal Determines Mangrove Zonation at Intertidal and Estuarine Scales
TLDR
It is found that mangrove propagule dispersal is not a passively buoyant process controlled by water currents, but a actively adjusting process that should inform conservation managers when restoring mangroves or evaluating the potential impacts of global change and anthropogenic disturbances that might alter the hydrology. Expand
Seasonal release of propagules in mangroves – Assessment of current data
TLDR
Phenology is often neglected in dispersal research, in spite of its potential effects on the patterns of propagule deposition, and significant correlations are found between mangrove propagule release timing and monthly average rainfall and temperature. Expand
A general framework for propagule dispersal in mangroves
TLDR
It is shown that important dispersal factors remain understudied and that adequate empirical data on the determinants of dispersal are missing for most mangrove species, as well as the mechanisms and ecological processes that are known to modulate the spatial patterns of mangroves dispersal. Expand

Influences of salinity and shade on seedling photosynthesis and growth of two mangrove species, Rhizophora mangle and Bruguiera sexangula, introduced to Hawaii
TLDR
A greenhouse study to compare seedling growth and photosynthetic light response of both mangrove species growing at two light levels and contrasting salinity regimes indicates two contrasting strategies relative to sunlight and salinity. Expand
Stand structure and productivity of the introducedRhizophora mangle in Hawaii
Since its introduction in the early part of this century,Rhizophora mangle L. has spread extensively through most of the main islands of the Hawaiian Archipelago. We investigated the structuralExpand
Dispersal Properties of Mangrove Propagules
TLDR
This paper presents field and laboratory observations on some aspects of dispersal in four genera of Panamanian mangroves, including Laguncularia racemosa, Avicennia germinans, A. A. bicolor, Rhizophora mangle, R. harrisonii, and Pelliciera rhizophorae, and their zonational tendencies. Expand
Mangroves as alien species: the case of Hawaii
TLDR
Possible benefits of the presence of mangroves in Hawaii include an unusual opportunity to evaluate their functional role in coastal ecosystems and the chance to examine unique or rare species interactions. Expand
Maximum Longevities of Rhizophora apiculata and R. mucronata Propagules
The longevity of viviparous mangrove seedlings (propagules) in sea­ water is a key factor determining their ability to survive dispersal both locally and across large expanses of ocean. The purposeExpand
Landscape characteristics of Rhizophora mangle forests and propagule deposition in coastal environments of Florida (USA)
Field dispersal studies are seldom conducted at regional scales even though reliable information on mid-range dispersal distance is essential for models of colonization. The purpose of this study wasExpand
Bruguiera Species in Hawai'i: Systematic Considerations and Ecological Implications
TLDR
It is concluded that the primary, and perhaps only, Bruguiera species present in Hawai'i is B. sexangula, and sufficient regional variation occurs to warrant morphological and genetic comparisons of the three species across their whole geographic range. Expand
Introduction and Spread of Mangroves in the Hawaiian Islands
The terrestrial flora of Hawaii was derived from a small number of ancestral species as a result of the archipelago's remote location. Great expanses of open ocean separate Hawaii from continents andExpand
Factors influencing biodiversity and distributional gradients in mangroves
TLDR
It is believed influencing factors act similarly around the world, and examples of distributional gradients from the two global biogeographic regions, the Atlantic East Pacific and the Indo-West Pacific are presented. Expand
