Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the interactions between the inhabitants of mangal and seagrass communities. A robust descriptive ecosystem model is developed, and some of the major carbon fluxes through some of the principal functional components of ecosystems are quantified. Topics discussed include tree measurement, biomass, production estimation, what happens to mangrove production, microbial breakdown, crabs and snails, wood, the role of sediment bacteria, the fate of organic particles, predators, and seagrasses.

Keywords:   ecosystem model, carbon flux, tree measurement, biomass, mangrove production, microbial breakdown
