Description
The first quantitative investigation of the subtidal distribution of erect benthic macroalgae on three northern atolls of the Chagos Archipelago: Salomon, Peros Banhos, and the Great Chagos Bank.The line intercept transect technique was used to estimate macroalgal abundance , in terms of percent cover, on both the outer and lagoon reefs. Transects were placed at 5m, 15m, and 25m depths.Table 1. Average percent cover of erect macro algae at the three atolls and depth zones.Table 2. List of all taxa recorded on the Line Intercept Transects and collected during quantitative sampling surveys.
