Habitat and Ecology

Habitat and Ecology
This species is found in the intermediate estuarine zone in the mid-intertidal region. This species tolerates a maximum salinity of 65 ppt and a salinity of optimal growth of 8-15 ppt (Robertson and Alongi 1992). It is a hardy species, and fast-growing. This species can grow to 30 m. This species can be coppiced only in the eastern extremities of its range in Kosrae in The Federated States of Micronesia. In addition, sediment accretion increases the mortaility rate of seedlings. This species will not be an efficient colonizer of coastal areas exposed to sudden discharges of sediements such as those of highly eroding watersheds (Terrados et al. 1997).
