Table 2 F values of two-way ANOVA testing the differences in live roots biomass, roots necromass and soil variables among different mangrove forest types/sites and soil depth in Hanjiang River Estuary, south China

From: Colonization by native species enhances the carbon storage capacity of exotic mangrove monocultures

Dependent variables Sources of variance
Forest types/Sites Soil depth Forest types/Sites × Soil depth

Root necromass (Mg ha−1) 5.127* 4.162* 0.738**
Organic carbon storage in live roots (MgC ha−1) 34.316* 5.812** 2.804**
Organic carbon storage in dead roots (MgC ha−1) 15.063** 2.227 5.162**
Organic carbon storage in soil (MgC ha−1) 2.659* 34.167** 6.629**
