Broward County Biological Constituents - 2001 Algae Transects

Following the AGRRA protocol, 116 transects were surveyed to estimate percent cover and dominant macroalgal species present over the nearshore hardbottom within the study area. Biologists evaluated the macroalgal community every three meters along each 30-meter transect using a 25 x 25 cm quadrant for a total of 1,160 quadrants. Data obtained during the survey included the two dominant macroalgal species with estimation of percent relative cover; and overall percent cover of turf, macroalgae, blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) and coralline algae within the sites. Common turf algal and cyanobacteria species were identified, as well as less common macroalgal species. Transects were run from the hardbottom edge due east over the hardbottom. Representative photographs of each transect are included with the data set.
