NOAA's Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) Acropora palmata snail corallivore removal evaluation in the Florida Keys from 2011-2013 (NCEI Accession 0161266)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This data contains visual observations as well as Predatory snail removal and analysis on several reef plots in the Florida Keys. During the initial removal in June 2011, 639 snails were removed from twelve 150m2 plots. Snails were removed 2 additional times during a seven month removal phase, and then counted at five surveys over the next 19 months to track recolonization. At the conclusion, snails were collected, measured and sexed.
