The structural and functional diversity of the shallow-water benthic community at Granite Harbour
Entry ID: K082_2001_2002_NZ_8

Abstract: The biodiversity of the seafloor community at Granite Harbour was investigated to determine the structural and functional diversity of the benthic community during the 07-08 season. Scuba based video survey sampling was completed along two 20m transect lines that were laid on the seafloor within the 15-25m depth stratum starting from haphazardly chosen starting points. The transects were videoed ... View entire text
