Summary:
The objectives of this study were to: 1) record total quantity of leaf, branch, twig, and wood fall on an annual basis to determine annual production of leaves and turnover time, and to determine cyclic patterns of leaf fall of various tree species found in mangrove forests; 2) determine chemical composition of litter material to estimate the quantity of nutrients recycled in-situ, sequestered in a reduced state or exported to an adjoining ecosystem; 3) monitor the quantity and quality of organic matter, primarily litter fall, that is exported from mangrove forests to adjoining estuaries; and 4) use detrital fall as an index of the phenology of a south Florida mangrove forest.
