Abstract:
Background and Objective: The mangrove conversion in Indonesia is running massively, although its ecological function in climate change mitigation cannot be replaced by physical buildings made by humans. This study was aim at analyzing the composition of species, biomass, carbon stock and oxygen produced by mangrove vegetation. Materials and Methods: The study site was in mangrove forest at Kubu village, West Kotawaringin district, Central Kalimantan province, Indonesia. Estimation of biomass, carbon stock and oxygen produced by mangrove were calculated using combination of destructive and non-destructive methods. Results: The results show that the number of mangrove species found as many as 13 species, from 7 families and mostly included in the major mangrove species group. The species that dominating at all growth phases is Rhizophora stylosa, indicated by its highest importance value index (IVI). The total potential of biomass, carbon stock and oxygen produced are 97.12, 45.65 t ha1 and 121.88 O2 t ha1, respectively. The most dominant type of vegetation is Rhizophora stylosa in the growth phase of trees, saplings and seedlings. Conclusion: The authors call for mangrove forest conservation activities in order to increase the potential of biomass storage, carbon stocks and oxygen production.
