Title: Elkhorn coral demographic monitoring from 2004-03-30 to 2018-12-04 (NCEI Accession 0142175)
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 2004
Revision Date: 2020
Publication Date: 2016
Abstract:

The overall objectives of this project are to document the dynamics of the remaining Elkhorn populations in the upper Florida Keys and to compare its performance to other Caribbean locations. This is an on-going monitoring project with thrice yearly surveys in the upper Florida Keys and annual surveys in Curaao and only episodic surveys in Navassa (2006, 2009, 2012). Study units are 150 m2 plots in which all attached Acropora palmata colonies are mapped and surveyed each year. In Florida, individually tagged A. palmata colonies are surveyed more frequently to document their condition. Based on these observations, we can estimate basic population parameters including recruitment, growth and mortality, along with the causes of recent tissue mortality and the sources of recruitment (asexual or sexual). All monitored colonies are genotyped such that clones within the population are identified.

Purpose:

To quantify demographic rates (recruitment and mortality) and sources of mortality in remnant populations of Acropora palmata in the upper Florida Keys, Navassa Island, and reference populations in Curacao

Notes:

Several prior publications on this data: 1) Williams DE, Miller MW (2012) Attributing mortality among drivers of population decline in Acropora palmata in the Florida Keys (USA). Coral Reefs 31:369-382 2) Williams DE, Miller MW, Kramer KL (2008) Recruitm

Source Contribution:

Serves as a basic but evolving platform to involve many partners in collecting comparable data sets focused on Atlantic Acropora spp. from a variety of locations throughout the Caribbean. This data will be utilized in the ongoing efforts and responsibilities of NOAA-Fisheries to assess species' status and promote recovery under the auspices of the US Endangered Species Act. The protocols described in this manual have been developed over a period of five years of focal monitoring of primarily A. palmata in the upper Florida Keys by our team. We have also applied these techniques in Tortola, BVI and Curacao. Obviously, every population and site is different and may require adaptation to the specific monitoring methods
