Abstract

Putri L, Yulianda F, Wardiatno Y. 2015. Mangrove zonation and its associated macrozoobenthos in Pantai Indah Kapuk, Jakarta. Bonorowo Wetlands 5: 29-43. Mangrove ecosystem experience a variety of environmental pressures that will affect mangrove zonation and associated macrozoobenthos. This study was conducted to determine the zonation of mangrove and its associated macrozoobenthos in Pantai Indah Kapuk, Jakarta. Mangrove vegetation data were collected with the least squares method and a corer sampling macrozoobenthos. Mangrove-associated and Avicennia marina were found in close to the sea and close to the land area, although mangrove multispecies was found in middle area. Macrozoobenthos was dominated by Oligochaeta, Polychaeta, and Gastropoda, most abundance in middle area. Mangrove zonation is correlated with several classes of macrozoobenthos, especially Gastropods and Crustaceans. Recommended management of mangrove habitat is management of waste and rehabilitation with Rhizophora spp.
