Description
In the first part of the dataset zonation of the mangrove vegetation is described, secondly, the predation of fauna (crab species) on the juveniles that were planted, and thirdly, explanations are searched using additional and preliminary experiment for the possible preferences of consumption of propagules. Experiments were conducted from July to September 1993 in Gazi Bay and Mida Creek. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Verneirt, M. (1994). Faunistische factoren in de regeneratie van de Oostafrikaanse Mangrove: een case study in Gazi, Kenya = Faunistic factors in the regeneration of East African mangroves: a case study in Gazi, Kenya. MSc Thesis. VUB: Brussels. 62 + references + bijlagen (30p) pp.
