Protocols and/or Procedures
Description:

Equations relating measures of abundance to biomass and physiological measurements for 19 common kelp forest taxa. These data can be coupled with measures of biomass and seafloor irradiance to estimate taxon-specific primary production along the Santa Barbara coast.

These methods were presented in: Harrer, S.L., D. C. Reed, R. J. Miller and S. J. Holbrook. 2013. Patterns and controls of the dynamics of net primary production by understory macroalgal assemblages in giant kelp forests. Journal of Phycology, 49: 248-257. DOI: 10.1111/jpy.12023
