Decomposition of mangrove roots: Effects of location, nutrients, species identity and mix in a Kenyan forest
Huxham, M., Langat, J., Tamooh, F., Kennedy, H., Mencuccini, M., Skov, M. W., & Kairo, J. (2010)
Decomposition of mangrove roots: Effects of location, nutrients, species identity and mix in a Kenyan forest. Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science, 88(1), 135-142. doi:10.1016/j.ecss.2010.03.021
Mangrove trees may allocate >50% of their biomass to roots. Dead roots often form peat, which can make mangroves significant carbon sinks and allow them to raise the soil surf...
