Mangrove ecosystems: their microbiology, conservation and
restoration (basic and applied studies)
Version January 2016
Goal: Develop concepts and technologies about microbiology of
mangrove ecosystems and their uses for conservation and restoration of mangrove ecosystems in arid climatic regions.
Inoculation of the cyanobacteria Microcoleus
on black mangrove roots. This cyanobacteria increased the nitrogen
level of the plant.
Black mangrove reforestation in Balandra Lagoon, Baja
California Sur after 2 years
