Carpinteria Salt Marsh Habitat Polygons

Metadata Updated: December 12, 2017

We identified five common habitat types in Carpinteria Salt Marsh: channels, pans (flats), marsh, salt flat and upland. We then drew polygons around each habitat type identified from a registered and orthorectified aerial photograph and created a GIS shapefile. Polygons were ground-truthed in the field. From these habitat polygons, one can use GIS applications to estimate the area of each habitat type in this estuary. These data support the following publications: Kuris, Armand M., et al. "Ecosystem energetic implications of parasite and free-living biomass in three estuaries." Nature 454.7203 (2008): 515-518. Hechinger, Ryan F., Kevin D. Lafferty, Andy P. Dobson, James H. Brown, and Armand M. Kuris. "A common scaling rule for abundance, energetics, and production of parasitic and free-living species." Science 333, no. 6041 (2011): 445-448. Hechinger, Ryan F., Kevin D.

Buck, J.C., Hechinger, R.F., Wood, A.C., Stewart, T.E., Kuris, A.M., and Lafferty, K.D., "Host density increases parasite recruitment but decreases host risk in a snail-trematode system." http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/ecy.1905 June 2017 update: added the final DOI link to "Host density increases parasite recruitment but decreases host risk in a snail-trematode system" and removed a data release reference as reference to the manuscript "Host density increases parasite recruitment but decreases host risk in a snail-trematode system" is a better way for users to find all supporting data.
