Estimation of Absorption and Carbon Stock of Rhizophora mucronata and Avicennia alba in the Mangrove Conservation Area of Puntondo Village Laikang Village, Mangarabombang Sub-District, Takalar District

Author(s): Andraresty Ratri Andrini, Asbar, Muhammad Yunus


Takalar as one of the regencies in South Sulawesi Province has a large enough coastal area so that it is one of the biggest contributors to fishery and shopping potential in South Sulawesi. One of the quite strategic coastal areas in Takalar Regency is the coastal area of Puntondo Hamlet. This study aims to determine the level of density of mangrove ecosystems. In addition, this study also aims to determine the estimated value of carbon stocks in the types of Rhizophora mucronata and Avicennia alba as well as to determine mangrove carbon uptake. Research data were analyzed in a quantitative descriptive manner. The carbon content is calculated based on the carbon value which is the result of laboratory measurements and the full area. Mangrove forests are able to absorb CO2 for processing waste materials, spawning grounds, and others. The results of the research on estimating carbon stocks and absorption of Rhizophora mucronata and Avicennia alba are for an average mangrove carbon stock of 0.0151 ton/ha. For carbon uptake, an average value of 0.0857 tons/ha was obtained.
