Item Identification

Title: CRCP-Acropora spp. distribution in the upper Florida Keys 2013-2015
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 2013
Revision Date: 2016
Publication Date: 2017
Abstract:

This data set is derived from visual surveys by snorkelers using handheld GPS units to map extant live colonies of the threatened corals Acropora palmata and A. cervicornis in the upper Florida Keys. Appropriate habitat strata were targeted and prioritized from habitat maps in 2005. An initial survey was conducted in 2005-2007 of these reef areas. Follow-up surveys are being conducted in 2013-2015 to asses potential substantial changes in distribution and/or abundance in the same reef areas.

Purpose:

To provide in-water documentation of distribution and occurrence of Acropora palmata and Acropora cervicornis in the upper Florida Keys

Data Quality

Comparability:

In 2014 and 2015, we repeated broad scale (>50 ha), low precision Acropora

spp. censuses (i.e., direct observation by snorkelers documented via handheld GPS) originally conducted in appropriate reef habitats during 2005–2007 to evaluate the trajectory of local populations and the effect of population enhancement. Over the decade-long study, A. palmata showed a cumulative proportional decline of 0.4 –0.7x in colony density across all sites, despite very low levels of outplanting at some sites

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Once GIS maps are compiled showing location and general abundance of colonies is cross-checked against historic maps observed in 2005-2006 and amongst observers with local knowlegde

Lineage

Lineage Statement:

Data collected in situ by snorkelers using handheld GPS units. Data collected as waypoints (items to be mapped, specifically Acropora spp. colonies) and tracks (signifying the reef area searched). These waypoints and tracks were downloaded via GARMIN software, converted to Excel spreadsheet and then can be imported into GIS for visualization/analyses
