[ACG15-01] The effects of latitude on mangroves inferred from forest structure and productivity in the Ryukyu archipelago
Keywords:Production ecology, Biomass, GPP, NPP
This presentation focuses on the structure and productivity of mangroves around the Ryukyu Archipelago where the forest structure and function change drastically along a latitude since the study region is located around the northern distribution of mangroves. The effects of latitude on mangroves in East Asia will be discussed with some results based on the field researches conducted in the Ryukyu Archipelago.
