J. Assessment of Land Cover, Species, Population, and Beneficial Uses of Selected
Mangrove Ecosystems in the Province of Cavite, Philippines. Undergraduate Thesis.

Cavite. June 2019. Adviser: For. Junser P. Magpantay.
The study was conducted from September 2018 to March 2019 in Cavite City and
Noveleta to assess the land cover, species, population, and beneficial uses of
selected mangrove areas.
The delineated mangrove area in Cavite City covers 46.77 ha of Barangay 5, while
in Noveleta, it covers 57.35 ha of Barangay San Rafael IV, which is the largest mangrove
area in the province.
Using the supervised image classification in ArcMap 10.5, the area was classified
into two land uses: mangroves and water. Three-year periods (2013, 2016, and 2018) were
included in the assessment of land cover change of the mangrove areas. In Cavite City, the
total mangrove cover is 14.38 ha in 2013, 26.27 ha in 2016, and 26.41 ha in 2018.
Meanwhile in Noveleta, the total mangrove cover is 20.46 ha in 2013, 26.27 ha in 2016, and
35.70 ha in 2018. The mangrove ecosystems in both study sites increased in area through
the years. Furthermore, the estimated population of mangroves in Cavite City is 213,583
while there is an estimated 220,478.9 mangroves in Noveleta. The common species that
are present in both areas are Rhizophora apiculata, Rhizophora mucronata, Avicennia
marina, and Sonner Atia alba.
All participants agreed that mangroves are important in terms of providing food,
wood, livelihood, fresh air, and protection during calamities. The laws and provisions that are
implemented to protect and conserve the mangrove areas are Republic Act
No. 7586, which is known as the National Integrated Protected Areas System Act of
1992, Senate Bill No. 326 also known as the National Mangrove Forest Protection and
Preservation Act of 2016 and Senate Bill No. 1185: an act providing for the preservation,
reforestation, afforestation, and sustainable development of mangrove forests in the
Philippines. These are being implemented by the local government units and the residents
living near the mangrove areas to help nurture their mangrove ecosystems.
