Abstract:
A total of 15 reefs from six Natural Reserves (Desecheo, Rincón, Mayaguéz, Guánica, Caja de Muerto, and Ponce) and two new additional sites (Vieques and Vega Baja) were included in the 2011 national coral reef monitoring program of Puerto Rico. Quantitative measurements of the percent substrate cover by sessile-benthic categories and visual surveys of fishes and motile megabenthic invertebrates for determinations of species richness and abundance were performed along sets of five replicate permanent transects at each reef"--Executive summary.
