MetadataShow full item record
Mangroves are efficient in holding high carbon levels at bay, according to the United States Agency for International Development(USAID). The study determined the different types of mangroves present and estimated the amount of above and belowground biomass and carbon stored in the selected mangrove forest. Results revealed the mangrove forest can store more than 55,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide, which is the equivalent of taking more than 11,600 cars off the road in a year.
