The ratio of isotopes of carbon and nitrogen is one of the most common indicators of organic matter transport and storage in coastal wetland research. The effectiveness of these indicators requires quantification and analysis; and the effect of organic matter decomposition on isotopic signatures; The A. marina's leaves were enriched by up to 3. 1 and 2. 4 inches in leaves, as well as branchlets of C. glauca, respectively, but Z. muelleri was down to 4. 0 percent. Some tissue isotope signatures can be reliably predicted on the basis of sample composition, according to some tissue isotope signatures that can be determinable by sampling composition; however, several inter- and intra-species differences have barred a simple analysis of isotopic signature shifts purely based on plant-material molecular shifts. Our findings show that considering decomposition effects on stable isotope signatures in blue carbon ecosystems is extremely important.

Land degradation is affecting large areas of land and the ecological services provided by coastal wetlands. The goal of this paper is to determine the economic value of coastal blue carbon in Moulay Bousselham lagoon, Morocco, by examining the changes in carbon storage that have occurred over the past 49 years in reaction to changes in land use and cover. High resolution orthophotos were used to map LULC shifts and investigate cumulative LULC change in the MBL from 1971-2020. To do this, high resolution orthophotos were used to map LULC changes and investigate cumulative LULC transition in the MBL over the period 1971-2020. The results reveal that there have been 94 species of LULC transformation from 1971-2020, the majority of which involved the conversion of wet lawn and juncus meadow into cultivated land and the expansion of non-wetland areas, particularly coastal dunes and built-up areas at the expense of wetland habitats.
