Abstract

Research has been conducted in March to July 2013 in the Mangrove Ecosystem Pancer Cengkrong, Trenggalek, East Java, Indonesia. The objective was to obtain composition of mangrove vegetation and potential carbon stocks. There were three stations for composition of vegetation analysis. Potential carbon stock was calculated by allometric equations. The total of 26 species were identified (17 true mangroves and 9 association mangroves). The vegetation dominated by Sonneratia alba with an average density of 596 trees/ha, followed by Rhizophora apiculata (221 trees/ha) and Avicennia alba (149 trees/ha). The Saplings and seedlings dominated by Ceriops tagal (with average density of 1,745 Saplings/ha; 34,745 seedlings/ha). More than 75 % stand structure of mangrove have tree diameter of 4-9.9 cm. Total biomass and carbon stocks were 400.45 ton/ha and 185.81 ton/ha (equivalent to the total amount of CO2 uptake by 681.91 ton/ha). Sonneratia alba was tree that contribute the largest carbon storage.
