15 years of photoquadrats from St. John, USVI, were used to assess the abundance of benthic invertebrates on shallow reefs of St. John, USVI from 1988-2007.  This dataset includes the 30 species surveyed, their taxonomic hierarchy, and their assigned codes.

These data were used in Colvard NB, Edmunds PJ. (2011) Decadal-scale changes in invertebrate abundances on a Caribbean coral reef. Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology. 397: 153-160. DOI: 10.1016/j.jembe.2010.11.015
