Description

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 contains biennial species counts of 30 benthic invertebrates from Tektite Reef and Yawzi Point.

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(2): 153-160.  DOI: 10.1016/j.jembe.2010.11.015
