  • Are flow-vegetation interactions well represented by mimics? A case study of mangrove pneumatophores

    Horstman, Erik M.; Bryan, Karin R.; Mullarney, Julia C.; Pilditch, Conrad A.; Eager, Christopher Andrews (Elsevier, 2018)
    Arrays of real mangrove pneumatophores (i.e. aboveground pencil roots) and artificial dowel mimics were constructed in a laboratory flume to examine differences in canopy flow dynamics. Compared to the uniform-height dowel ...
  • Deposition gradients across mangrove fringes

    Horstman, Erik M.; Mullarney, Julia C.; Bryan, Karin R.; Sandwell, Dean R. (2017)
    Observations in a mangrove in the Whangapoua Harbour, New Zealand, have shown that deposition rates are greatest in the fringing zone between the tidal flats and the mangrove forest, where the vegetation is dominated by a ...
  • The dynamics of expanding mangroves in New Zealand

    Horstman, Erik M.; Lundquist, Carolyn J.; Bryan, Karin R.; Bulmer, Richard H.; Mullarney, Julia C.; Stokes, Debra J. (Springer, 2018)
    In contrast to the global trend of mangrove decline, New Zealand mangroves are rapidly expanding, facilitated by elevated sediment inputs in coastal waters as a consequence of large-scale land use changes following European ...
  • Model versus nature: Hydrodynamics in mangrove pneumatophores

    Horstman, Erik M.; Bryan, Karin R.; Mullarney, Julia C.; Pilditch, Conrad A. (2016)
    Water flows through submerged and emergent vegetation control the transport and deposition of sediment in coastal wetlands. Many past studies into the hydrodynamics of vegetation fields have used idealized vegetation mimics, ...
