Abstract

 Description of mangrove plants structure (zonation) is one of the sustainable utilization of ecological management tools in coastal plants formation. Accordingly, line TRANSECT (The length of each line plot was almost 100 meter) and circular plot random-systematic (10 plots sample per TRANSECT) were designed for determination of Avicannia marina (Harra) forest structure in Khamir coastal regions of Persian Gulf, Hormozgan Provice. In each line plot module, parameter of the stand such as density, height, percentage cover of stands, aerial roots height and number of aerial roots crown height, diameters of collar of the trees were measured in tow type of mangrove stands including: 1- high regeneration and 2- low regeneration. Investigation of homogeneity of mangrove structure was performed by T-test which showed significant differences in two stand types. Results showed that, although the Avicennia marina is the only tree species existing in this area, their forests have significant differences regarding to many parameters in two TRANSECTs along sea to land, which altogether indicate heterogeneity of grey mangrove pure stands on basis of these parameters.
