Description:
Abstract:
Transects of the coral colonies at 21 sites in American Samoa were surveyed by Dr. Charles Birkeland during an underwater swim in March 2002. Data for each coral species include abundance and size distribution of the colonies. The living coral cover can be estimated from the size distribution data.
Purpose:
To check the status of the coral reef communities in American Samoa.
