Abstract: Decomposition of Rhizophora mucronata leaves both in the laboratory and in the field resulted in the loss of organic carbon and ash and increase in total nitrogen, organic matter, protein and caloric content. In the decomposed leaves, relatively high values of combustible organic matter were recorded (97.07% in the field and 88.4% in the laboratory).
