Abstract

Mangrove area in Muara Angke was dominated by api-api (Avicennia
marina) and bakau (Rhizophora mucronata). We asume that these
species was able to acumulate h  eavy metals, since both of them have
adapted in this environmental condition which content of high
concentration h eavy metals. The objective of this experiment was to
analyze heavy metals content in the tissue of api-api (Avicennia marina)
and bakau (Rhizophora mucronata) in Muara Angke Jakarta. The results
showed that Cu was highest heavy metal content in root of bakau
(24.431 ppm) . While 23.674 ppm of Cu was content in api-api roots. Cu
content in sediment was 26,640 ppm.
