Abstract:
This data set is the Fall 2004 estimate of crab densities at the GCE-LTER marsh sites used for population monitoring. Crab abundance was determined by counting the number of crab holes within a 625 cm^2 quadrat and converting the counts to number per square meter. Counts were made in the mid-marsh and creekbank zones (n = 4 per zone) at all sites. This method does not differentiate which species made a particular hole and therefore only estimates total crab abundance. Plugged holes were excluded from the counts. Mean density across all sites and zones was 154 m^-2 (+/- 188 s.d). Overall bounding box describing the geographic region within the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems LTER study domain represented in data set INV-GCEM-0411b

Access_Constraints: Data Access Policy As a member of the Long Term Ecological Research Network, the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems LTER Program is committed to providing access to data collected under the auspices of our project in a timely fashion. Study results will be published in the scientific literature, and documented data sets and other information will be provided on the World Wide Web for legitimate scientific and educational purposes. Access to GCE resources varies by resource type and user affiliation, and requires acceptance of the GCE LTER Data Use Agreement. Descriptions of the basic data access categories used to classify each resource are as follows: Category Description Maximum waiting period Type 1 Public resources, including most GCE metadata, data from published studies, literature citations, and conference presentations. May also include special reports or unpublished treatments of public data sources. none Type 2 Project resources, including data from GCE core monitoring activities, presentations made at project meetings, and metadata containing proprietary information. 1 year from the end of observations or data analysis Type 3 Proprietary resources, including data from individual directed studies or student projects supported by GCE funds, and resources contributed by GCE-affiliated research programs. 2 years from the end of observations or data analysis Type 4 Sensitive resources, including data sets subject to proprietary or copyright restrictions, containing classified information, or containing information that may compromise the protection of endangered species or habitats. (Note: submission of type 4 data requires written justification and prior approval by the GCE Project Administrator). Specified by Contributor
Use_Constraints:
All publications based on this data set must cite the contributor and Georgia Coastal Ecosystems LTER project, and two copies of the manuscript must be submitted to the GCE-LTER Information Management Office.
