Item Identification

Title: SEASONAL
Short Name: SEASONAL
Status: Completed
Abstract:

The data table SEASONAL contains information on the seasonal presence of each species associated with each spatial vector object. Abundance information was adapted from NOAA's Estuarine Living Marine Resources Program (ELMR) (Nelson, 1992) and supplemented with information provided by resource experts. Under each month in the seasonality table for most fish, a number code indicates the species abundance (1 = rare, 2 = common, 3 = abundant, 4 = highly abundant). The abundance usually refers to the adult life stage. For species where monthly abundance detail was not known, seasonality is listed by month with an 'X' indicating the species presence. See the Browse_Graphic section for a link to the entity-relationship diagram, which describes the way this table relates to other attribute tables in the ESI data structure. | Description Source: Research Planning, Inc.
