Evaluating the relative contributions of hydroperiod and soil fertility on growth of south Florida mangroves



Evaluating the relative contributions of hydroperiod and soil fertility on growth of south Florida mangroves



Hydrobiologia 569: 311-324



Low and high water periods create contrasting challenges for trees inhabiting periodically flooded wetlands. Low to moderate flood durations and frequencies may bring nutrient subsidies, while greater hydroperiods can be energetically stressful because of oxygen deficiency. We tested the hypothesis that hydroperiod affects the growth of mangrove seedlings and saplings in a greenhouse experiment by varying flood duration while keeping salinity and soil fertility constant.
