Abstract. Mangrove partitioning and storage of macronutrients and trace metals were examined in different arid coastal settings of Western Australia. Total living biomass in three Rhizophorastylosa forests, which ranged from 233 to 289 t DW ha–1, was significantly greater than biomass in three Avicenniamarina forests (range: 79–155 t DW ha–1). Although prop roots and stems were the largest single tree components for R.stylosa and A.marina, respectively, most nutrients were stored in leaves and… 

Nutrient capital in different aged forests of the mangrove Rhizophora apiculata

It is suggested that the proportion of element capital stored in forest biomass increases, but decreases in soils as forests age, suggesting net accumulation with forest maturity.

Biomass and nutrient composition of temperate mangroves (Avicennia marina var. australasica) in New Zealand

The harvest method is used to estimate above- and below-ground biomass (AGB and BGB) and nutrient content of the New Zealand mangrove Avicennia marina var.

Stocks and soil-plant transfer of macro-nutrients and trace metals in temperate New Zealand estuarine mangroves

AimsRapid expansion of temperate mangroves in New Zealand over the last decades has prompted an increase in resource consents for removal. However, little is known about the capacity of temperate

The relationship between soil characteristics and the nutrient status in roots of mangrove (Rhizophora apiculata) trees

Plant nutrient availability is one of the major factors influencing mangrove forest structure and productivity. These nutrients are absorbed through the roots following a complex range of interacting

Decomposition of mangrove roots depends on the bulk density they grew in

Aims Mangroves hold large organic carbon (C) stocks in their soils. These C stocks are mainly attributed to the high productivity and slow decomposition of the below-ground biomass. Rates of

INVITED REVIEW: PART OF AN INVITED ISSUE ON TREE NUTRITION Nutrition of mangroves

Summary Mangrove forests dominate the world's tropical and subtropical coastlines. Similar to other plant communities, nutrient availability is one of the major factors in fl uencing mangrove forest
