Brief description

This dataset contains seagrass productivity and distribution data from Jervis Bay, NSW. The data were obtained between October 1988 and July 1991. Aerial photographs and ground truthing data were used to map the boundaries and distribution of the seagrass meadows. Digitised seagrass maps have been merged with the mangrove and saltmarsh maps (Chapter 2) to create 13 maps of the marine and estuarine habitats of Jervis bay. Taxa identified two species that form large meadows and two other species that occur in Jervis Bay. Experiments on seagrass restoration were conducted and also at the CSIRO Marine Laboratories in Marmion, Western Australia. The data are part of the Jervis Bay Marine Ecological Study. NB - As the database has been lost, the only data still available are those published in the JERVIS BAY BASELINE STUDIES Final Report.

Lineage

Source: original field data. Samples identified in either field or laboratory and examined for shoot, biomass, density, epiphyte weight, productivity and phenology. Restoration experiments were conducted in aquaria and the field. Shading experiments conducted in the field. Processing: statistical comparisons use ANOVA's.
