Summary
Abstract: Metadata record for data expected from ASAC Project 996
See the link below for public details on this project.

The study investigated the effects of the small sewage outfall on algal epifauna in the isthmus area. No impacts were detected and patterns of community structure were tentatively explained by local differences in wave exposure gradients.
