Brief descriptionTo provide comprehensive information on habitats and biodiversity with a focus on sponges, soft coral and macroalgae. Qualitatively and quantitatively describe the biodiversity values of t selected areas of the reef in relationship to the bio-physical environment, patterns of reef use and access form land, linking these with physical and biological surrogates to enable specific biodiversity values to be applied across the NMP. Identify hot spots and develop an understanding of the environmental and habitat factors that explain the distribution of these hotspots.
