Tropical Mangrove Ecosystems
Description of a forest's "structure" may include measures of species composition, diversity, stem height, stem diameter, basal area, tree density, and the age-class distributions and spatial distribution patterns of the component species in the forest. The most noted feature of mangrove forest structure is the often conspicuous zonation of tree species in to monospecific bands parallel to the shoreline (Snedaker, 1982). Zonation has been a dominant theme in the voluminous literature on mangroves (Frith, 1977; Rollet, 1981), as well as in that on other vegetation types (Whittaker, 1967).
