Figure 6

(a) Saltmarsh establishment is limited by inundation depths D larger than its height hsaltm due to hypoxia. (b) Mangrove establishment, on the other hand, is limited by its pneumatophores being able to access oxygen at least half of the time, which is given by a hydroperiod H smaller than 0.5 at the pneumatophore height hpneumat. MHT stands for Mean High Tide.
