Description: An integrated biotic inventory of mangrove areas of Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia, was undertaken to determine priority areas for preservation and sustained-yield management. Criteria for the designation of reserve areas included: the presence of threatened or endangered species; rare species or particularly rich biota; undisturbed old-growth communities; the need to maintain intact mangrove to protect biotic resources from excessive wave action or sedimentation; or similarly, to protect cultural and economic resources; areas of high fisheries or forestry productivity; timber stocking, and proximity to wood-consuming businesses or other infrastructure. Standard forest inventory plots consisting of five sample points distributed over 1.4 ha were placed at random throughout the mangrove to describe stand composition and stocking and to estimate the area of mangrove forest exploited and the amounts and types of products removed. Results of studies to date and recommendations for reserves are reported.
