Variation in hydraulic conductivity of mangroves: influence of species, salinity, and nitrogen and phosphorus availability

Lovelock, Catherine; Ball, Marilyn; Feller, Ilka C; Engelbrecht, Bettina; Ewe, Mei Ling


We investigated how species identity and variation in salinity and nutrient availability influence the hydraulic conductivity of mangroves. Using a fertilization study of two species in Florida, we found that stem hydraulic conductivity expressed on a leaf area basis (Kleaf) was significantly different among species of differing salinity tolerance, but was not significantly altered by enrichment with limiting nutrients. Reviewing data from two additional sites (Panamá and Belize), we found an...[Show more]
