Ratios of species abundance to invasive Submerged Aquatic Vegetation (SAV) Eurasian milfoil, Myriophyllum spicatum in the Mobile Tensaw Delta, northern Gulf of Mexico in July - October, 2006 (NODC Accession 0200021)

These data are spreadsheet data which are a subset of thesis data for the Degree of Doctorate of Philosophy in Marine Science. The objectives of the study are to determine how community structure of the Mobile Tensaw Delta has changed due to invasive submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) altering food web interactions.

Data are in .csv format. Parameters include: latitude, longitude, SAV type, species caught in throw trap, species abundance in throw trap, leaf surface area within trap, meters2 surface area (leaf surface area multiplied by 4), ratio between species abundance and leaf surface area of each type of SAV, and ash-free dry weight of sampled SAV.
