Abstract

Contribution of Coastal Macrophytobenthos to Blue Carbon

Human emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) has been accelerated, and greenhouse effect and ocean acidification are known as serious CO2-induced climate changes. There has been recently great interest in the ability of marine autotrophs as a sink for CO2, and such role was named as “Blue Carbon”. One of the focused environments for the capacity of Blue Carbon is coastal area where there are a variety of benthic organisms due to inhabitation of macrophytobenthos.
