In a seagrass bed 80 m from a riverine mangrove community, detritus from seagrass or other marine sources of carbon such as epiphytes (Stilophora rhizodes) or phytoplankton was the major contributor of reduced carbon. Mangroves make only a localized contribution to the food chain, contributing a relatively low proportion of reduced carbon to this seagrass community. -from Authors
