), cable roots with pneumatophores, knee roots Ecology 79: 1061–1072. We also extend many thanks to Clare Taubman for creating the summary diagram. Rhizophora apiculata is a species of plant in the Rhizophoraceae family. A., 1999. Marine Ecology 3: 13–19. Rhizophora stylosa Griff. But regrowth was greatest in sections cut from moderately damaged roots. Sphaeromids may benefit the plant by inducing increases of lateral out-branching of new aerial roots (Ribi, 1982). As most mangrove propagules the propagules of Rhizophora stylosa are viviparous and already develop a sprout on the mother tree. Four types of community (Rhizophora stylosa pure forest, R. stylosa+Bruguiera gymnorrhiza mixed forest, R. stylosa+Avicennia marina mixed forest, and R. stylosa+B. Alongi, D. M., 1987. Shigo, A. L., 1985. Paige, K. N., 1992. The objective of this study is to investigate the spatial structure of Rhizophora stylosa prop roots in different community types in terms of 3 parameters of the uniform angle index, neighborhood comparison and nearest neighbor by setting the location of R. stylosa prop roots. Fieldwork for IWH was supported by Operation Wallacea and field collections of prop-root measurements were helped by Kungdan. stylosa (Griff.) The damaged area produces an increase of parenchyma cells, and the new outgrowth of non-radial vascular tissue may offer structural rigidity for the increased mass of cortex tissues. These data demonstrate that R. stylosa prop roots are able to defend against teredinid larval settlement when exposed to superficial damage, and prop roots are able to produce an over compensatory level of tissue regrowth with moderate damage increasing root fitness. Differences of colour intensities used as a proxy for tannin content between surgical treatments over time were examined using a General Linear Model (GLM) with time and treatment as factors. 4). Sections cut from superficially damaged roots had almost no measurable changes. & Stout, M. J. Applied Science, Barkin, UK, pp. This study highlights the resilience and ability of mangroves to heal damaged roots and defend against woodborers. Lennartsson, T., P. Nilsson & J. Tuomi, 1998. McIvor, A. L., Möller, I., Spencer, T., & Spalding, M., 2013. 2017) Climate change mitigation • Root biomass is a major Plants subject to herbivory may outperform uneaten plants, and plants with an over compensatory level of tissue regrowth produce greater numbers of seeds when compared with uneaten conspecifics (Paige, 1992). After 12 months, no differences of tissue loss and regrowth were detected between the three mangrove localities (GLM, F Gill, A. M. & P. B. Tomlinson, 1977. Rhizophora is a genus of tropical mangrove trees, sometimes collectively called true mangroves.The most notable species is the red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle) but some other species and a few natural hybrids are known.Rhizophora species generally live in intertidal zones which are inundated daily by the ocean. Sedghi, M., A. Golian, P. Soleimani-Roodi, A. Ahmadi & M. Aami-Azghadi, 2012. Google Scholar. Induced plant responses to herbivory. Sal-voza), and together they characterize most stands of IWP stilt mangroves. This study aimed to determine why Rhizophora stylosa Griff trees were not toppled by wood boring teredinids by assessing the level of damage required to expose roots to teredinid colonisation. Singapore Science Centre. In each mangrove forest, three plots measuring 10 m × 10 m were designated for the experimental damage. Induced responses to herbivory in wild radish: effects on several herbivore and plant fitness. A Fisher’s exact test with a post hoc pairwise test was used to test for differences between sections with or without lateral outgrowth of new vascular tissue after 12 months. face roots (Excoecaria agallocha), prop roots (Rhizophora apiculata ), stilt roots ( R . However, intensity declined over time in all three levels of damage and was significantly lower on roots subject to superficial damage than on the more severely damaged roots (GLM, F Laboratory screening of tropical hardwoods for natural resistance to the marine borer Limnoria quadripunctata: the role of leachable and non-leachable factors. Light is emitted and displayed by the intensity at which these colours are projected. Institute of Marine Sciences, University of Portsmouth, Ferry Road, Portsmouth, PO4 9LY, UK, You can also search for this author in Rhizophora stylosa on the NParks Flora and Fauna website: photos and fact sheet. Root tissue loss was also great, with −31 ± 13% loss of the original circumference (Fig. PubMed  This was also apparent with naturally occurring severely damaged roots, as evidenced by the many teredinid tunnels. Suh, S. S., J. Hwang, M. Park, H. S. Park & T. K. Lee, 2014. The role of herbivory by wood-boring insects in mangrove ecosystems in Belize. A.C. Website Hol, G. W., M. Macel, J. Annual Review of Ecology and Systematics 20: 331–348. Rhizophora stylosa grows along the coast and sometimes directly in the ocean near the coast, often in areas where rivers flow into the ocean, soils are very nutritious and where humidity is between 60 to 80 percent and the air temperature is between 25 to 30°C. Within each plot, each treatment was conducted on three individual roots totalling nine roots per plot and 27 roots per site. 2A). Filho, C. S., C. H. Tagliaro & C. R. Beasley, 2008. Aerial roots growing from the tree´s limbs also help the plant breathe. No difference of mortality was found between the moderately and severely damaged roots (Fisher’s Pairwise Comparison). The Nature Conservancy, University of Cambridge, and Wetlands International, Bali, Indonesia, September, pp. The morphological and physiological resilience of mangrove trees enhances their survival in marine habitats. Studies on the growth of red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle L.) 2. Rhizophora stylosa grows up to 15 metres (50 ft) tall with a trunk diameter of up to 25 centimetres (10 in). However, significant differences were found with the number of teredinid tunnels in sections among different surgical treatments (PERMANOVA, F Thus, root fitness was compromised. Overcompensation in response to mammalian herbivory: the advantage of being eaten. The stilt roots are flexible and were traditionally used for making bows[490. Tannins in mangrove tree roots and their role in the root environment. Ribi, G., 1982. Does the wood-borer Sphaeroma terebrans (Crustacea) shape the distribution of the mangrove Rhizophora mucronata?. The Ecology of the Indonesian Seas Part Two. Hydrobiologia Many roots exposed to moderate and severe levels of damage had necrotic cell damage. Rhizophora stylosa grows naturally in Japan, China, Taiwan, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malesia and Australia (New South Wales and Queensland). Plant Life of the Great Barrier Reef... (1985) p 230-32 Parts Shown: Flower, Habit Photo. The Stilted Mangrove was als spread by human for coastal protection and aquaculture. Wound-initiated tissue regrowth, also known as wound periderm, compartmentalises wounds and may prevent the spread of potential pathogens to healthy plant tissues (Wier et al., 1996). Losses of root tissue (percentage of cm2) were greatest in sections cut from severely damaged roots. Bhatt, J. R. & Kathiresan, K., 2012. The first surgical treatment (superficial) consisted of removal of the outermost layer of the bark, the periderm (Fig. More than 95% of roots exposed to superficial damage had made a complete recovery. PubMed  Feller, I. C., 2002. 3, GLM, F Almost 80% of moderately damaged roots had made a full recovery. The regenerative abilities of R. stylosa prop roots and the plant’s fitness are dependent upon the level of damage imposed to the tissues, coupled with extrinsic factors such as intensity of herbivory. The environmental impact of wood-borers in mangrove swamps. gymnorrhiza+A. & P. A. Daniel, 1989. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10750-017-3106-6, DOI: https://doi.org/10.1007/s10750-017-3106-6, Over 10 million scientific documents at your fingertips, Not logged in Ecophysiological responses of viviparous mangrove Rhizophora stylosa seedlings to simulated sea-level rise.As the only forests situated at the transition between land and sea, mangrove forests constitute one of the first ecosystems vulnerable to rising sea level. 2,17 = 93, P ≤ 0.001). The cortex of the root took on a strong red colouration after being experimentally damaged. The vascular cylinder is the water-carrying component (Gill & Tomlinson, 1971), and the inner limit of the cortex is tannin-free (Gill & Tomlinson, 1971). Zero percent, 15 and 8% of the roots exposed to superficial, moderate and severe levels of damage (respectively) died. Plant structural traits and their role in anti-herbivore defence. The blackening of the wounds in the roots is due to the formation of a tannin-ferric iron complex, which counteracts potential toxicity to the roots via oxidation (Kimura & Wada, 1989). Marine Ecology Progress Series 486: 237–245. Rhizophora stylosa develops little brown fruits which are about 3-5cm small. Proceedings of the. If present, all teredinid tunnels in each section were counted. Artisanal fishers damage many prop roots from harvesting oysters by hacking the bivalves off the roots using machetes (Crow & Carney, 2013). Nova Science Publishers, Hauppauge, NY. However, necrotic regions tend to become isolated from the rest of the tree, so that the stability of the tree itself is not significantly compromised. 5). The colonised wood may take anywhere from 2 to 15 years to completely break down (Robertson & Daniel, 1989; Kohlmeyer et al., 1995). Relationship between color and tannin content in sorghum grain: application of image analysis and artificial neural network. Damage and alteration of mangroves inhabited by a marine wood-borer. The stress imposed to the plant by the increased energy requirement may also be magnified by the stress imposed by teredinid tunnelling. In Clifton, J., et al. We are grateful to Operation Wallacea for arranging lodgings and visas. Energy expenditure may eventually lead to a decrease in fitness. Primary herbivory by wood-boring insects along an architectural gradient of Rhizophora mangle. Franke, R. & L. Schreiber, 2007. The influence of mangrove-derived tannins on intertidal meiobenthos in tropical estuaries. Ambio 31: 574–579. The loss of fitness may be due to increased energy investments and greater use of resources (Agrawal, 1999). Plants also express resistance to herbivory via strategies labelled as tolerance mechanisms (Paige, 1999; Brooks & Bell, 2002), defined as tissue repair and regrowth after exposure from stress. Haukioja, E. & J. Koricheva, 2000. Estimation of aboveground biomass in a Rhizophora stylosa. However, teredinids are the only borers able to penetrate the thicker woody tissue. The wound response of a mangrove is increased by the level of injury. Hydrobiologia 803, 333–344 (2017). Evidence for a wounding-induced xylem occlusion in stems of cut chrysanthemum flowers. 2,932 = 3.2, P ≥ 0.05). airflow in plants of Rhizophora stylosa and indicate that leaf, stem, and root growth are well regulated in plants of various sizes in accordance with this internal airflow. Mangrove wood herbivores range from insects such as beetles (Perry, 1988; Feller & Mathis, 1997) to wood-boring aquatic molluscs (Teredinidae) (Robertson & Daniel, 1989). The greatest amount of tissue regrowth was found in the moderately damaged roots (PERMANOVA, F To assess the frequency of different levels of damage, roots were counted in the mangrove forests. Agrawal, A. Previous studies have successfully used digital analysis to predict tannin content based on the colour of the image. Ian W. Hendy. The experiments took place in three intertidal R. stylosa-dominated mangrove forests in the Tukang Besi archipelago, Wakatobi Marine Park, East Sulawesi, Indonesia (see Cragg & Hendy, 2010 for site details). The fruits are ovoid to pear-shaped and measure up to 4 cm (2 in) long.. Distribution and habitat. Title Flora Vitiensis Nova Publication Author Smith. In Sharpley, J. M. & A. M. Kaplan (eds), Proceedings of the 3rd International Biodegradation Symposium. Outliers are marked as asterisks. Oikos 97: 167–176. & S. S. Bell, 2002. Rhizophora stylosa is tolerant to the substrate in which it grows as long as it is very nutritious. Davidson, T. M., C. de Rivera & H.-L. Hsieh, 2014. The second treatment (moderate) consisted of additionally removing the cortex (Fig. Six plots measuring 10 m × 10 m were designated to estimate the number of naturally occurring damaged prop roots in the mangrove forests. No teredinid tunnels were recorded within the superficially damaged sections (Fig. Google Scholar. In coastal habitats where mangroves are found, plants are exposed to ebb tides that cause the nitrogen-containing detrital litter to be washed offshore (Boto and Robertson, 1990). Iheringia Series of Zoology 98: 17–23. The effect of teredinids within the root will result in a greater loss of tissues, but only when the level of damage has compromised the vascular cylinder. 2 Parts Shown: Root, Habit Photo. Guest editors: K. W. Krauss, I. C. Feller, D. A. Friess & R. R. Lewis III / Causes and Consequences of Mangrove Ecosystem Responses to an Ever-Changing Climate. The superficially damaged R. stylosa prop roots did not respond with excess regrowth of tissues, and shipworms were unable to settle upon the exposed cortex. Box plot analysis of the roots exposed to the three surgeries. Wound healing in higher plants II. Rhizophora stylosa develops the for Rhizophora species typical stilt roots or prop roots. Eine kontrollierte Nutzung unter Berücksichtigung forstlicher Gesichtspunkte wird seit langem in Malaysia praktiziert, ist andererorts aber die Ausnahme. No roots died when exposed to this level of damage (Fig. Decomposition of mangrove wood by marine fungi and teredinids in Belize. Rhizophora stylosa roots are able to defend against teredinid larval settlement by production of tannins in damaged cortex tissue and by an over compensatory regrowth. mucronata var. Conversely, herbivory may be beneficial (Paige & Whitham, 1987; Paige, 1992). A Fisher’s exact test was used to test for differences between live and dead roots. The bark is dark brown to black. Seasonal abundance of the shipworm Neoteredo reynei (Bivalvia, Teredinidae) in mangrove driftwood from a northern Brazilian beach. All statistical analyses were performed using MINITAB (MINITAB Inc, version 13.20) and PRIMER 6.1 (PrimerE Ltd: Plymouth Routines in Multivariate Ecological Research). Many roots subjected to experimental damage to the treatments became discoloured and black on the damaged areas. Tree 14: 179–185. Biotropica 3: 63–77. A undamaged healthy prop roots—a typical view of roots demonstrating no obvious evidence of damage to their periderm (outer layer), and B a damaged root with teredinid tunnels within the vascular cylinder indicated by arrows. © 2020 Springer Nature Switzerland AG. Zoological Society 7: 91–103. The most prevalent level of damage was severe damage, which is a measure of un-healable damage (PERMANOVA, F PubMed  However, teredinid larval settlement may occur only after the bark has deteriorated (Kohlmeyer et al., 1995) and the tannins have leached away (Borges et al., 2008). Mangrove plants may likely use the tolerance strategy against damage or stress (Brooks & Bell, 2002), as many other angiosperms have evolved this response to combat herbivore attack (Strauss & Agrawal, 1999). This may have been caused by the large amount of tannins present in the roots (Suh et al., 2014). 6,932 = 272.7, P ≤ 0.001. (eds), Marine Research and Conservation in the Coral Triangle. This study examines the ability of live Rhizophora stylosa prop roots to heal damaged tissues and defend against herbivorous attack from teredinids in three mangrove forests. Article  x-axis = percent of root circumference removed, y-axis = percent of root circumference recovery after 12 months. Plants respond to damage and infection by compartmentalising the affected area, reducing the spread of infection to healthy tissues (Bloch, 1952). Mechanical wounding of plant tissues activates genes that induce the production of the enzyme phenylalanine ammonia lyase that assists the production of suberin (Karban & Myers, 1989; Doorn & Cruz, 2000). The propagule starts to grow its sprout in the fruit while it is still on the mother tree. PubMed Google Scholar. Basic and Applied Ecology 5: 253–260. Ecology 80: 1713–1723. The main trunk is erect and covered by rough, reddish-brown bark. Rhizophora stylosa develops the for Rhizophora species typical stilt roots or prop roots. Periplus Editions, Singapore. Symposia of the Zoological Society of London 63: 251–263. Bakau pasir (Rhizophora stylosa) Ng, Peter K. L. & N. Sivasothi, 1999. CAS  Tannins undergo oxidation and oxidative darkening produces red, brown and black pigments in the presence of moisture (Nemeth et al., 2013).

Bloch, R., 1952. Limnology and Oceanography 34: 640–646. Roonwal, M. L., 1954. A The removal of the periderm layer (superficial damage), B removal of the cortex tissue (moderate damage) exposing the vascular cylinder, and C removal of the vascular cylinder, (severe damage). The third treatment (severe) consisted of additionally removing the inner radial wall of the vascular cylinder, exposing the inner pith (Fig. This may be due to the variation and frequency of teredinid attack coupled with the severity of damage imposed upon each root. 168 pp. Rimmer, M. A., S. L. Battaglene & P. L. Dostine, 1983. Tannin intensity post damage was analysed using ImageJ. Red mangroves in North Queensland may grow to 20 m high, though trees of 4 to 5 m are more common elsewhere. It grows stilt like roots … The variation of tissue loss and regrowth between the different surgeries may be due to the degree of stress tolerance of each root. Robertson, A. I. Feller, I. C. & W. N. Mathis, 1997. Overcompensation in response to mammalian herbivory: from mutualistic to antagonistic interactions. Almost 75% and 36% of all moderately and severely damaged sections, respectively, had lateral out-growths from the cylindrical vascular tissue. Marine Ecology Progress Series 231: 85–90. 1). This study examines the ability of live Rhizophora stylosa prop roots to heal damaged tissues and defend against herbivorous attack from teredinids in three mangrove forests. The effect of moisture content and drying temperature on the colour of two poplars and robinia wood. Jusoff, K., 2013. Holzforschung 62: 99–111. The rapid recruitment of teredinids found in severely damaged roots may have been facilitated by the removal of the cortex layer that protects the inner vascular cylinder. The growth of the new vascular tissues may provide some structural rigidity for the new cortex. Paige, K. N., 1999. Coupled with prolonged immersion, with greater root damage, the level of teredinid tunnelling increased. However, significant differences were found with tissue regrowth among the root treatments (GLM, F When tissue patterns arise that differ from the norm, or when a lack of pattern is encountered, the cellular regrowth can be classified as atypical (Bloch, 1952).
