Belt transect surveys to monitor benthic community structure at selected research and control sites, east coast Tasmania, Australia (2008-2011)

Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Sep 22, 2019 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

Belt transect surveys (50m) were used to monitor the benthic community structure through time at experimental (lobster additions/ research reserve sites or abalone diver urchin culls) and control sites in eastern Tasmania. Measures of percentage cover of key algal guilds, percentage of reef grazed by sea urchins, number of sea urchins (Centrostephanus rodgersii, Heliocidaris erythrogramma), Abalone (Haliotis Rubra), Rock lobsters (Jasus edwardsii) and type of substratum were recorded.
