Doctoral Degree , Mangrove ecology and management

The study focused on the impacts of tree harvesting on the carbon ballance and functioning of mangroves. It involved estimation of carbon loss in terms of carbon efflux from the sediments and loss of surface elevation. due to tree cutting. In addituion, it assessed the effects of tree cutting on habitat functions such macrofaunal composition and abundance, and the natural regeneration potential of the forest
