    Abstract

    Mangrove trees have a very significant impact to the coastal environment, carbon fixation capacity of mangrove forests is higher than that of the terrestrial forest. Therefore it has been considered as an important carbon sink in coastal ecosystems. The destruction of mangroves in many areas in Indonesia cause a reduction in the quality and quantity of mangrove ecosystem of the mangrove forests that function is not optimal. The cause of the damage and the growth of mangroves on the former ponds in Solok Buntu Sembilang National Park studied in this paper. Information on growth and biomass estimation methods of mangrove plants are also very useful for various agencies such as foresters, ecologists, government and ecophysiologists. Research has been conducted on mangrove ecosystems in the former pond Solok Buntu Sembilang National Park in South Sumatra at December 2010 and January 2011. Data obtained through deep interviews with farmers. Growth data obtained by the allometric method. Conversion of mangroves into fishponds land is a major cause of mangrove degradation in Solok Buntu. Avicennia marina is a mangrove species that grow naturally and dominant in the former ponds. The condition of the former pond is still capable of supporting the growth of mangrove vegetation either naturally or even planting and restoration efforts to the next degraded areas. Keywords: degradation, mangrove, ponds, Sembilang National Park, Solok Buntu
