Production and biomass information of roots is valuable for understanding the ecological process within mangroves. In this study, the production, biomass, turnover rate, and longevity of underground roots of mangrove (Rhizophora mangle L., Laguncularia racemosa L. Gaertn, and Avicennia germinans L. Stearn), as well as the density and biomass of pneumatophores was evaluated in relation to hydroperiod and physico-chemical properties of substrate and water in the Mecoacan Lagoon, Gulf of Mexico. Root extraction was performed in order to measure the biomass and production of roots by in-growth core technique; whilst the hydroperiod and physico-chemical parameters in water were determined using piezometers. The study was conducted from September 2016 to August 2017. A total root biomass of 23.7 tonDw ha−¹ (subterranean roots + pneumatophores) was weighing; the large roots showed the highest biomass weighing 1532 ± 254 gDw m−²; followed by the medium roots (189 ± 30 gDw m−²) and fine roots (194 ± 27 g Dw m−²). The average total production was 0.41 ± 0.05 g m−² day−¹, an average turnover rate of 0.41 ± 0.07 year−¹ and longevity of 4.04 ± 0.07 years. Pneumatophores showed average heights of 17.8 ± 0.8 cm with a density of 292 ± 30 pneumatophores m−² and average biomass of 453 ± 51 gDw m−². In conclusion, the production and biomass of subterranean roots and pneumatophores show spatial variations controlled by environmental factors as hydroperiod, interstitial redox potential, mangrove tree density and soil moisture content.

Mangrove is the dominant vegetation in the estuaries, river deltas, and coastal lagoons of tropical and subtropical regions. A number of factors affect the structure and productivity of mangrove forests, including hydrology, soil salinity, and soil type. In this study, litter production in the Centla Wetland Biosphere Reserve in Tabasco, Mexico, was evaluated as a function of the physical–chemical properties of water and sediments. The study cycle was from June 2015 to June 2016. Litterfall was measured, and water samples were collected at the surface, interstitial, and subterranean level to estimate the physical– chemical parameters. Sediment samples were also collected to determine the texture, pH, organic matter, bulk density, and moisture content. The mangrove was composed of Rhizophora mangle (L.), Laguncularia racemosa (L.) Gaertn, and Avicennia germinans (L.) Stearn. The pH was presented in a range of 5.3 to 7.4, and spatially, the texture of sediment varied significantly, with high values of sand in Playa (73.7% 3.4%) and high content of clay (57.2% 1.4%) and organic matter (41% 2% average) in mangrove riverine type. The highest salinity of interstitial water was encountered at Beach (29 3.0 PSU) and of groundwater (36.4 1.5 PSU). Overall, the average estimated litter fall was 10.45 tonha 1 year 1 . These results indicate that the litter production is related to the response of the mangrove to the variation of the environmental conditions of each site (substrate texture, hydroperiod, soil moisture, water salinity, water redox potential, and soil organic matter).
