Abstract

Mangrove forests provide components of blue carbon reservoirs, warranting their preservation to mitigate climate change. Rhizophora mucronata is the dominant species in mangrove conservation forest at Baros Beach. This research was aimed to assess the carbon sequestration, relative density, and substrate acidity (pH) related to the growth of R. mucronata. The methods were: sampling points determination based on map area; establishing 10 m x 10 m measurement plots (PU); growth parameter measurements, canopy area, and soil samples collection. The results showed a correlation between substrate acidity and R. mucronata relative density. Relative density reached 100% in PU 4 and 5, where the substrate’s pH is neutral, whereas in PU 2 and 1 relative density was less and it correlated with high acidity of substrate. The carbon sequestration potential of mangroves in PU 2 and 3 was the highest, the values are 95.60 kgC/m2 and 95.72 kgC/m2, respectively. This was consistent with the biomass values obtained, suggesting a correlation between carbon sequestration potential and biomass. PUP 10 had the lowest carbon sequestration levels, primarily attributed to its comparatively smaller canopy coverage compared to others. Potential carbon storage of R. mucronata at the mangrove ecosystem in the Pantai Baros area was from 16.95 to 95.72 kgC/ m2 which is influenced by the growth of mangrove trees.
