Geodatabase of benthic organisms for the Florida Coral Reef Tract from 1996-01-01 to 2012-01-01 (NODC Accession 0123059)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The Benthic Organisms of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary geodatabase is a collection of information on the distribution of benthic organisms within the sanctuary compiled from multiple sources. It contains information on the distribution of benthic habitats from the Unified Florida Reef Tract Map version 1.1, the distribution of hard and soft corals surveyed by multiple monitoring programs, the distribution of resilient reefs and distribution of seagrasses.
