The effect of the distance to the intracoastal on white mangrove growth


The white mangrove laguncularia racemosa
The White Mangrove (LagunculariaRacemosa)

  • Found from Volusia County all the way down the coast

  • Shelters small marine life, and holds down soil with their strong roots during hurricanes and other strong storms

  • Roots allow them to live in either fresh or salt water because roots can take out the salt

  • Leaves are rounded, greenish-yellow color, and have glands called nectarines, which emit a salt that creatures eat

  • Has the ability to grow up to 60 ft. tall

  • Thrives in tropical regions, with lots of sun and water


The dendrometer
The Dendrometer

  • Unique scientific instrument; used to measure the growth of a tree trunk over periods of time (finding the circumference)

  • Equipped with a spring, which allows the band to move as the tree grows

  • Have a specific way to read, it’s NOT like reading a book


The intracoastal
The Intracoastal

  • Runs along some of the Gulf coast and most of the Atlantic coast; about 3,000 miles long

  • Goes through rivers, lakes, bays, and lagoons

  • Majority is made up of salt water, some parts can be fresh water though

  • Parts are man-made, while some are naturally occurring

  • Used as a major place for transporting goods

Effect of the Distance to the Intracoastal on White Mangrove Growth

  • Can survive in both types of water the Intracoastal has, salt and fresh

  • This affects the growth because if it’s closer, it’s giving the tree more water to live on

  • Since the White Mangrove can separate the salt, this would be beneficial


THE END Growth
