Title: Historic Inventory of Acropora Around Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands
Abstract: Atlantic acroporid corals were listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) of 1973 on May 9, 2006, and a 4(d) rule was final on October 29, 2008, applying all Section 9 prohibitions of the ESA for the protection of elkhorn and staghorn corals with some limited exceptions, such as...

Title: Predicted Habitat Suitability for All Mesophotic Corals in the Au'au Channel Region
Abstract: This raster denotes predicted habitat suitability for all mesophotic corals in the Au'au Channel region. Maximum Entropy (MaxEnt) modeling software was used to create this ensemble model, which is an average of 10 model replicates. MaxEnt works by analyzing the distribution of environmental...
