ID 08CRD01
Also Known As B-1-08-VI
Abstract United States Geological Survey, Saint Petersburg, Florida, Center for Coastal and Watershed Studies, Coastal and Marine Geology Program. Chief Scientists: Ilsa Kuffner, Valerie Paul, Smithsonian Marine Station, Ft. Pierce, FL, Linda Walters, University of Central Florida, Teresa Turner, University of the Virgin Islands. Biological data of field activity 08CRD01 (B-1-08-VI) in U.S. Virgin Islands from 05/30/2008 to 06/13/2008

Activity Type Biological
Area of Operation U.S. Virgin Islands, Virgin Islands
Bounding Coordinates
-65.75000     -63.25000
Ports LEAVE Brewers Bay, St. Thomas
ARRIVE Cruz Bay, St. John
Dates 05/30/2008 (JD 151) to 06/13/2008 (JD 165)
Analog Materials No analog holdings.
The goal of the study is to examine the
process of herbivory in Virgin Islands National Park, and to conduct
experiments (to be conducted in Brewers Bay, St. Thomas) on the impacts of
nuisance macroalgae on coral recruitment.  We will be surveying sites on St.
John, both inside and outside of the newly established no-take Coral Reef
Monument so that changes in trophic structure and herbivory rates resulting
from protection from all fishing can be evaluated over time.
Information to be Derived
Percent cover of macrophytes, abundance and size of herbivorous fishes, density
of herbivorous sea urchins, estimates of grazing intensity, rugosity of the
substratum, percent live coral cover, and percent cover by other invertebrates.
