Biomass estimation was carried out for three even-aged dominant mangrove species (Avicennia alba, Excoecaria agallocha and Sonneratia apetala) in two regions of Indian Sundarbans with two distinct salinity regimes for three consecutive years (2008-2010) and the results were expressed in tons per hectare (tha-1). In the western region, the total mean biomass of the mangrove species varied as per the order A. alba (41.65tha-1 in 2008, 55.79tha-1 in 2009, 60.86tha-1 in 2010)>S. apetala (31.76tha-1 in 2008, 32.81tha-1 in 2009, 39.10tha-1 in 2010)>E. agallocha (13.89tha-1 in 2008, 15.54tha-1 in 2009, 18.28tha-1 in 2010). In the central region, the order was A. alba (42.06tha-1 in 2008, 57.09tha-1 in 2009, 64.57tha-1 in 2010)>E. agallocha (15.30tha-1 in 2008, 20.02tha-1 in 2009, 24.24tha-1 in 2010)>S. apetala (6.77tha-1 in 2008, 9.46tha-1 in 2009, 11.42tha-1 in 2010). Significant negative correlation was observed between biomass of S. apetala and salinity (p<0.01), whereas in case of A. alba and E. agallocha positive correlations were observed (p<0.01). Species-wise linear allometric regression equations for biomass prediction were developed for each salinity zone as a function of diameter at breast height (DBH) based on high coefficient of determination (R2 value). The allometric models are species-specific, but not site-specific. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
