Global Distribution of Modelled Mangrove Biomass - United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre
Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme
This dataset shows the modelled global patterns of above-ground biomass of mangrove forests. The dataset was developed by the Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, with support from The Nature Conservancy. The work is based on a review of 95 field studies on carbon storage and fluxes in mangroves world-wide. A climate-based model for potential mangrove above-ground biomass was developed, with almost four times the explanatory power of the only previous published model.
