Item Identification

Title: Population Monitoring of Acropora palmata and its predator, Coralliophila abbreviata, in the upper Florida Keys 1998 to present
Short Name: Population Monitoring of Acropora palmata and its predator, Coralliophila abbreviata, in the upper Florida Keys 1998 to present
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2005-11
Abstract:

This record refers to ongoing population surveys of corallivorous snail, C. abbreviata, and two of its coral hosts, Acropora palmata, and Montastraea spp at six reef sites (three open and three in no-take zones) in the upper Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Surveys are conducted annually in Apr-May. A set number of colonies of each host is searched for snails. Each colony is measured and condition is noted (percent live tissue cover as well as incidence of disease or other conditions). All snails are enumerated, measured, and then returned to the colony on which they were found.

Purpose:

These long term surveys are designed to document status and trends of A. palamta and C.abbreviata populations.

Classification_System_Modifications: A species list is provided in the original data files, but not all species were observed during the study. Only those species identified during the surveys are included in this metadata record. Higher level taxonomy of species was completed, and species synonyms were noted, FOR THIS METADATA RECORD ONLY at the NODC using the Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS) in conjunction with additional taxonomic and museum references as required. No originator data has been altered at the NODC; higher level taxonomy is added at the NODC to selected biological metadata records as an aid to search engines which utilize metadata.

Taxonomic_Procedures: The Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS) was used to detemine complete classifications.
