Definition Year of data collection Month of data collection Date of data collection Physical location of field site Name of shore-normal transect. Distance between transects is randomly selected for each sample date but order relative to access point remains the same. Can be used as replicates. These data represent a 1 to 4 letter code for the type of cover recorded along the transect. Can be types of wrack, debris, driftwood, carrion, tar, or substrate. Distance to high tide series, the 24 hour high tide strand line Distance to the water table outcrop. Total length of the transect with cover of the "type" recorded. Total volume of the "type" recorded. Calculated from length, maximum depth, and 1 meter width for each "type". Total wet biomass of the "type" recorded per meter of shoreline, centered on each transect. Numeric code indicating the observer who collected the field data. Text annotations to data observations. Generic name of observed species in Linnean taxonomic system. Species name of observed species in Linnean taxonomic system. Description of the "type" recorded. Functional grouping term for observed species. The survey method used to collect the data. All of this data was collected using a line-intercept method along each of three shore-normal transects per site. Phylogenetic Kingdom of the observed species. Phylogenetic Phylum of the observed species. Phylogenetic Class of the observed species. Phylogenetic Order of the observed species. Phylogenetic Family of the observed species.
