Support for macroalgal ecology and taxonomic assessment for coral reef assessment and monitoring program sites, 2000-2002 for the Hawaiian islands (NODC Accession 0000884)

The role that marine algae play in a coral reef system is often overlooked because of lack of knowledge that they are the primary producers in the system. The coral reef ecosystem in Hawaii contains about ten times more algal species than coral species, some of them regulating space that permits coral recruitment. This study took place during 2000-2002 at 44 sites for a total of 56 dives (each dive a unique day) on 7 of the major islands in Hawaii. Most sites correspond to the Coral Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program (CRAMP) locations, for which extensive monitoring of the coral and fish ecosystems have been undertaken from 1999-2002.

Purpose (0) To understand better the role that marine algae play in a coral reef systems of Hawaii. (1) To generate an algal species list for each transect line, site and island (2) Collect voucher specimens of all species encountered including alien species, rare species new records and/or new species (3) To classify benthic habitat based on algal community structure (4) To estimate abundance and percent cover of various algal functional forms and species on transect lines.
