Carbon Storage in Secondary Mangroves along the West Coastline of Maputo City, Mozambique

Mangroves are often excluded when estimating carbon (C) from global and tropical forests. Therefore, C estimates of global and tropical forests are likely to be underestimated. On the other hand, allometric biomass models and C stocks estimates are lacking for juvenile mangrove trees (seedling and sapling), yet required for increasing of young successional mangrove forests as result of disturbances. In this study, allometric biomass models were fitted and ecosystem C stock estimated for a juvenile secondary mangrove forest, using a non-destructive biomass sampling. Besides the advantage of enforcing additivity and being least biased, the models fitted simultaneously using nonlinear seemingly unrelated regression (NSUR) with parameter restri
