CRED REA Coral Population Parameters at Baker, Phoenix Islands, Pacific Remote Island Areas in 2008

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

Belt transects along 2 consecutively-placed, 25m transect lines were surveyed as part of Rapid Ecological Assessments conducted at 4 sites at Baker, Phoenix Islands in the Pacific Remote Island Areas (PRIAs) during 24 January - 14 February 2008 in the NOAA Hi'ialakai (HI0801) Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program (RAMP) Cruise. Raw survey data included species presence and relative abundance, colony counts and size classes by genus, and determination of benthic cover using the line-intercept method. Depending on colony density, 1 m on each side of the transect lines was included in the belt (for a total of 25-50m2 per site).
