Sampling sites located in mangrove zonation of Poteran Island, Madura, East Java. Sampling conducted in the northern part of the Poteran Island, because the best mangrove zonation only found in this area of the Island.

The ecological relationships of animal species was studied by Frith et al. () who reported on the zonation of macrofauna on a mangrove shore at Phuket Province in Thailand.

They concluded that the substratum and the exposure period at low tide were the most important factors limiting the distribution of animals. Indistinct zonation could also be due to the narrow strip along the coastline that mangroves occupy, varying from 30 to metres.

While smaller roots were distributed more or less evenly, larger roots were restricted to shallower layers. Animals were more abundant in shallower layers, but some of them penetrated into the deepest. The only published studies on zonation of macrofauna of the sandy beaches on the Kenya Coast by Jones () and Icely and Jones () were confined to some species of.

The zonation of 15 species of Littoraria in the scabra group is described, using a transect method, at 13 mangrove localities in Australia, Thailand, Malaysia and Hawaii.

At these localities the littorinids occurred only on trees, and showed both vertical and horizontal Zonation of macrofauna on a mangrove shore of zonation, with broad overlaps between co-occurring by: The composition and abundance of the meiofauna and macrofauna were studied in a survey carried out within 6 locations in a mangrove at the Island of Santa Catarina, South Brazil.

Nine meiofaunal taxa were registered with densities ranging between 77 and inds cm −2. The nematodes, composed by 94 putative species (86 genera), largely dominated the by: Not all the species of mangrove plants can be found in any one mangrove community. The zonation is controlled by the interaction of tidal flooding, and salinity and drainage of the soil.

The zonation varies in different areas and no two areas are exactly the same (Fig. devastation that can happen when deltaic and island mangrove swamps are deforested. “Land” in mangrove swamps is peat, produced primarily by red-mangrove rootlets.

South-East Asia is a biodiversity hot spot for several different animal and plant taxa, and grapsoid crabs are dominant components of its mangrove macrofauna.

However, autecological traits of the species and assemblage structures are still largely undescribed. During the period –14, we surveyed six mainland and insular mangrove sites along the west coast of the Malay Peninsula, four of Author: Laura Ribero, Phaik Eem Lim, Rosli Ramli, Gianluca Polgar.

The study sites were arranged along a transect, as earlier studies on mangrove fauna have shown clear zonation patterns in relation to tidal elevation, forest type and sediment properties Zonation of macrofauna on a mangrove shore, Phuket Island.
