Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) - Lizard Island Reef Biodiversity Expedition, Queensland, Australia (2008 - 2009)

Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Jul 16, 2018 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

The CReefs Australia project is a collection of a variety of taxa from three locations: Ningaloo Reefs in Western Australia, and Heron and Lizard Islands off the coast of Queensland (separate metadata records are kept for each location) between 2008 and 2010. Sampling was conducted by scuba, snorkel and beach collection.

Collection was mainly by hand; some samples were obtained by traps, grabs, sediment pumps, hook and line, speargun.

Taxa have been matched to the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS). This dataset was sourced on July 2018 from the original DiGIR dataset at OBIS and updated to reflect changes in the OBIS data requirements.
