Effects of Microclimate on Mangrove Freeze Damage

graphs showing the level of mangrove free damage to different climate variables

Detailed Description

Hypotheses regarding the effects of microclimate on temperature gradients that control mangrove freeze damage. Microclimatic gradients due to local factors (e.g., proximity to water, soil, or vegetation) can determine whether temperatures are below or above a threshold at which mangrove damage and/or mortality will occur. For more info, see Osland et al. 2019. (from Figure 2 in Osland et al., 2019).
