Hydrological controls on the biogeochemical dynamics in a Peruvian mangrove forest
(Springer Verlag, 2017)
A tropical mangrove forest in Northern Peru was studied to determine if physical and biogeochemical characteristics of creek water and subtidal sediments are related to the seasonal hydrological regimes. The results showed ...
Characterisation of the effect of a simulated hydrocarbon spill on diazotrophs in mangrove sediment mesocosm
An analysis of the effect of an oil spill on mangrove sediments was carried out by contamination of mesocosms derived from two different mangroves, one with a history of contamination and one pristine. The association ...
Subtropical Brazilian mangroves as a refuge of crab (Decapoda: Brachyura) diversity
This study characterized seven mangrove areas of different sizes, located on the southeastern Brazilian coast, with respect to their sediment and vegetation features. We also estimated the richness and composition of the ...
Triterpenols in mangrove sediments as a proxy for organic matter derived from the red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle)
Mangroves are the dominant type of vegetation along many tropical coasts. Organic matter (OM) derived from mangrove leaf litter and root material is stored in sediments and is a major contributor to the amount and chemical ...
Tidally driven sulfidic conditions in Peruvian mangrove sediments
The seasonal influence of tidal regimes on sulfidic conditions was studied in intertidal environments from a mangrove estuary in Northern Peru. Along two sampling stations, creek water and sediment cores were collected ...
Phytoremediation in mangrove sediments impacted by persistent total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH???s) using Avicennia schaueriana
(Marine Pollution Bulletin, 2013)
Factors influencing organic carbon accumulation in mangrove ecosystems
(The Royal Society, 2018)
There is growing interest in the capacity of mangrove ecosystems to sequester and store 'blue carbon'. Here, we provide a synthesis of 66 dated sediment cores with previously calculated carbon accumulation rates in mangrove ...
