Effects of different management regimes on mangrove ecosystem services in Java, Indonesia

Effects of different management regimes on mangrove ecosystem services in Java, Indonesia

Primary Country: Indonesia
Ecosystem: mangrove
Sample Value Estimates:
(a) Natural mangrove forests achieve the highest total scores for total ecosystem service provision. Especially protection forests provide maximum amounts of regulating, cultural and nursery services, which result in high provision of raw materials and food as well. (b) Low intensity use mangrove forests score lower for each ecosystem service. This is mainly due the limited maturity of Java’s production forests Plantation forests score relatively high, and most results have a high certainty, due to extensive research on mangrove plantations in relation to natural mangrove forests. Plantations’ potential for water purification are particularly interesting, because of the possible combination of raw material harvest and removal of effluent nutrients. (d) Results on silvo-fishery systems are highly uncertain, but have the potential to provide provisioning, regulating and nursery services, simply be existing and maturing, without the need for intensive management and heavily impacting activities (e) Aquaculture systems are managed for the purpose of food production, andd negative scores are assigned on water purification and carbon sequestration. The role of sediments in aquaculture pond management is crucial, as sound management could prevent additional nutrient and carbon emissions.
Methodology: knowledge from state of the art literature on mangrove management as well as biophysical and ecological research on mangrove ecosystem services
Region: Asia
