Seedling survivorship, growth, and response to disturbance in Belizean mangal

Background

Species zonation patterns across tidal gradients in mangrove forests are formed by successful seedling establishment and maintained by replacement of adults by conspecific seedlings. These two processes have rarely been examined experimentally in neotropical mangrove. This study examines survivorship and growth of seedlings of Rhizopora mangle and Avicennia germinans across a tidal gradient in Belize.

Conceptual Framework for Mangrove Restoration in the Yucatán Peninsula

Background

In the Yucatán Peninsula, mangroves were lost at a rate of around 1.84% per year between 1976 and 2000. In 2000, the North American Wetlands Conservation Council gave the state government of Yucatán $800,000 towards mangrove restoration projects. Some research shows that the projects funded by this grant did not fully meet restoration goals.

Reasons for reforestation success and failure with three mangrove species in Colombia

Background

This study examines the mortality and growth rates of the propagules, seedlings and saplings of three native mangrove species (A. germinans, L. racemosa, and R. mangle) in order to determine the ecological factors that influence tree growth and survival in deforested mangroves with restored hydrologic conditions on the Caribbean coast of Colombia.

Plant Growth-Promoting Bacteria: A Potential Tool for Arid Mangrove Reforestation

background

Microbes (bacteria and fungi) play a crucial role in nutrient recycling in mangrove systems, which are nutrient deficient. Microbes make nutrients, especially nitrogen and phosphorous, available to mangroves, while mangroves may improve soil conditions for microbes (for example, by oxidizing the soil). PGPB may be nitrogen fixers, phosphate solubilizers, mineral uptake enhancers, and phytopathogen controllers.

Monitoring of Black Mangrove Restoration with Nursery-Reared Seedlings on an Arid Coastal Lagoon

background

This paper describes a reforestation experiment with black mangrove (Avicennia germinans) in an arid mangrove forest of Baja California Sur, Mexico. In arid mangrove systems, natural regeneration and small-scale reforestation are not adequate to restore mangrove forests, as they may be in the humid tropics. Thus, alternative nursery techniques for arid mangroves must be developed.

Propagación vegetativa de tres especies de mangle por acodos aéreos en el manglar de Sontecomapan, Catemaco, Veracruz, México (Asexual propagation of three species of mangroves in Veracruz, Mexico).

Los autores evaluaron la propagación asexual por acodos aéreos en las especies Rhizophora mangle (Rhizophoraceae), Laguncularia racemosa (Combretaceae) y Avicennia germinans (Avicenniaceae) bajo el supuesto de que una planta de mangle propagada por acodo puede ser de mayor altura y más rápido crecimiento.
