Title Gas exchange and isotopic signature of mangrove species in Southern Brazil
Language English
Document Type Article
Author Keywords Photosynthetic rates; Stable isotopes; Salinity tolerance; Water use efficiency
Abstract The study measured leaf gas exchange parameters and abundance of stable isotopes of C and N of three mangrove species (Rhizophora mangle L, Avicennia schaueriana Stapf & Leechm. ex Moldenke. and Laguncularia racemosa (L.) Gaertn) to investigate how photosynthetic capacity and water use efficiency characterize salt tolerance along an environmental gradient, in the Guaratuba Bay Estuary, Brazil, around 25 degrees S. Along the estuary, parallel to the river, nine 50 m(2) plots were marked: three plots at the fringe, three plots at the intermediary zone (around 150 m from the fringe), and three plots at the interior zone (around 350 m from the fringe), to represent the zonation pattern expressed by mangrove species. We used gas exchange parameters to calculate intrinsic water use efficiency (A(max)/g(s), WUEi). Long-term water use efficiency was calculated based on delta C-13 values, and delta N-15 values were related to source of N. Avicennia schaueriana showed the capacity to maintain high WUEi, even with high g(s) under higher salinities. The foliar delta C-13 of L. racemosa, was lower than the other species and negatively correlated to pore-water salinity. Rhizophora mangle gas exchange parameters did not correlate to the measured soil variables. Although the difference was not significant in R. mangle, delta N-15 values indicate that fringe mangroves may use a marine source of N. How species respond to changes in pore-water salinity is expressed in both gas exchange parameters and isotopic signature through the floodplain gradient. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
