CARBON SEQUESTRATION OF MANGROVE ECOSYSTEM IN SEGARA ANAKAN LAGOON, INDONESIA
Keywords:carbon conservation, carbon sequestration, mangrove clustering, mangrove ecosystem
AbstractCarbon conservation programs in mangrove ecosystems focus on the growth of mangrove vegetation that is measured based on the amount of carbon present at different tree stages particularly, the seedlings, saplings and mature mangrove trees. This study was aimed to determine carbon percentage of mangrove ecosystems using the SNI 06 â€“ 3730 â€“ 1995 and TAPPI T 211 om 85 methods, and to analyse the mangrove clustering based on carbon percentage. TheÂ results showed that (1) Avicennia spp, Sonneratia spp, Bruguiera spp, Rhizophora spp, Aegiceras spp, Lumnitzera spp, Ceriop spp, Exoecaria agallocha and Xylocarpus granatum had carbon percentages between 45.01-55.54%; (2)Â the carbon percentage of mangroves at different growth stages were as follows; seedlings at 16.3-21.2%, sapling at 19.0-28.1%, trees with diameter at breast height (DBH) of 10-20 at 38.1-46.3%, trees with DBH of 20-30 cm at 40.2-51.1% and trees with DBH of 30-40 cm at 49.1-55.2%. The carbon conservation is positively correlated with the carbon sequestration ability and growth of the mangroves.
