Response of Florida Shelf Ecosystems to Climate Change

2001 NSU Reef Transects

On each reef edge adjacent to the borrow areas a sample site was chosen by a double randomized design within which 6 transects of 50 m in length were taken. Transects were arranged so that in each sample site, 105 linear meters of reef edge were evaluated to a depth of 10 m from the edge of the sand into the reef. Sample points were situated at each 1 m point along the transect. Every organism or substratum type underlying the point was recorded. Organisms were recorded to species whenever possible.
