Carbon Partitioning and Allometric Relationships between Stem Diameter and Total Organic Carbon (TOC) in Plant Components of Bruguiera gymnorrhiza (L.) Lamk. and Lumnitzera racemosa Willd. in a Microtidal Basin Estuary in Sri Lanka
The capacity of plants to sequester carbon depends on net primary productivity and pattern of biomass/carbon partitioning within the plant which is not well understood for mangroves. Above (A) to below (B)-ground carbon ...
Contribution of Vegetation Structure on Carbon Assimilation Capacity of Mangrove Ecosystem: A Case Study from Negombo Estuary, Sri Lanka
Mangrove ecosystems perform number of important ecological functions and provide a wide range of services at the local or national level and provide a unique combination of both organic matter production and sequestration, ...
Potential impact of predicted sea level rise on carbon sink function of mangrove ecosystems with special reference to Negombo estuary, Sri Lanka
Unique location in the land-sea interface makes mangrove ecosystems most vulnerable to the impacts of predicted sea level rise due to increasing anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Among others, carbon sink function of these tropical ...
Carbon retention capacity of two mangrove species, Bruguiera gymnorrhiza (L.) Lamk. and Lumnitzera racemosa Willd. in Negombo estuary, Sri Lanka
Carbon accumulation/sequestration by plants is a major function that contributes to removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and capacity to perform it depends on the plant species and environmental conditions under ...
