Abstract

Research into the role of Terebralia snail in the storage of carbon at mangrove Pulau Panjang was performed from November to December 2013. The mangrove was located in the intertidal part which is affected by a low tide of the sea. When collecting the data, we made 30 quadrants with a 0.25 × 0.25 m size, which was determined at random. The measured data were Terebralia density (T. palustris and T. sulcata) and the carbon content in the whole body. The results of the study showed that Terebralia palustris has the highest density of 25 individual/m2, while Terebralia sulcata has the lowest density of 15 individual/m2. The percentage of carbon content stored in the body of T. palustris ranged from 16.27 to 18.89 % with an average of 17.45%, while the carbon stored in the body of T. sulcata ranged from 15.98 to 17.62 % with an average of 16.87%. Potential carbon storage by T. palustris and T. sulcata was 4374 g C/m2 and 2609 g C/m2, respectively.
