Entry ID: K082_2001_2002_NZ_7

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The biodiversity of the seafloor community at Dunlop Island and Spike Cape was investigated to determine the structural and functional diversity of the benthic community. A minimum of three sites, separated by at least 50m and accessed through separate dive holes were surveyed. Two 20m transect lines were laid on the seafloor within the 15-25m depth stratum starting from haphazardly chosen ... View entire text
