Abstract Estimation of carbon pools and fluxes were conducted in Bruguiera parviflora dominated naturally growing protected mangrove forest in Kuala Selangor Nature Park of Peninsular Malaysia. Above and below-ground carbon pools in seedlings were estimated from destructive methods. While, carbon pools and fluxes in saplings and trees were estimated from the derived allometric biomass equations. Carbon concentrations in different parts of seedlings, saplings and trees; and litter were measured during the dry, wet and intermediate seasons. Soil cores up to 1 m were analyzed to measure carbon concentrations and bulk densities at different depths. Litter standing crop of the study area was measured at the dry, wet and intermediate seasons and the range of total amount of litter standing crop was from 0.66 to 0.88 Mg/ha. Carbon concentration found to vary with the plant and litter parts; and also with the seasons and the range of mean weighted carbon concentration was 40.19 +/- A 0.87-56.52 +/- A 1.01 %. The carbon pools in seedling, sapling, tree and litter were 0.69, 0.51, 82.62 and 0.41 Mg C/ha respectively. However, 13.95 Mg C/ha/year of carbon flux was associated with saplings, trees and litter. The estimated carbon pool in the soil (up to 1 m) of the study area was 488.04 Mg C/ha. The findings of this study are the first estimation of carbon pools and fluxes in B. parviflora dominated sites and suggests the potential of this site as a carbon pool.
