Influence of species richness and environmental context on early survival of replanted mangroves at Gazi bay, Kenya

Abstract

Mangrove reforestation projects often suffer from low sapling survival, especially after transplanting saplings from nurseries to reforestation areas. This may be due to the sediment conditions at the target site, the planting strategy or failure to re-establish ecosystem processes. We examined experimentally the influence of environmental context, species… (More)
