Summary:
Measurements of carbon dioxide exchange and transpiration were made on four south Florida mangrove-forest tree species at Rookery Bay, Florida. The species were studied by compartment (trunks, prop roots, pneumatophores, seedlings, and shade and sun leaves) during two study periods: August 1971 and January-February 1972. Data obtained from the gas exchange studies suggest a metabolic basis for the zonation of the four mangrove species.
