Definition Calendar year Calendar month Date of data collection in format: YYYY-MM-DD Code for reef site. See list of codes for meaning 40m transects defined by six permanent markers (stainless steel eyebolts or rebar stakes) at 0, 8, 16, 24, 32, and 40m. 1-4 letter code generally composed of the first letter of the genus (G) name and the first three letters of the species (S) name (format=GSSS). Percent cover of the species noted as determined by a uniform point contact method (80 point per 40x2 meter transect) where multiple layers of species at a given point are accounted for. Text annotations to data observations. taxonomic genus taxonomic species functional group of organism data collection method is currently uniform point contact. see protocol. taxonomic kingdom taxonomic phylum taxonomic class taxonomic order taxonomic family Genus prior to most recent name change Species name prior to most recent name change common_name substrate type organism is either sessile or mobile organism is either aggregate or solitary
