Soil redox potentials and pore water sulfide concentrations on a mangrove island in the Belizean barrier reef system were significantly correlated with the presence of the aerial roots of mangrove trees. Sulfide concentrations were three to five times lower near the prop roots of Rhizophora mangle (red mangrove) and the pneumatophores of Avicennia germinans (black mangrove) than in adjacent (? 1 meter away) unvegetated sediment. Soil redox potentials were also significantly higher near the… Expand
