General Information:
Title:Recruitment of Planctonic Larvae to Benthic Habitats
Identifier:nceas.932.2
Abstract:
Data from the PISCO: Intertidal: Coastal Biodiversity Surveys: Quadrat Surveys was used to generate the plots in this data set. Monthly recruitment rate time series and Recruitment rate climatologies are included. These plots were used with the Paper, "Spatial and temporal patterns of recruitment of intertidal invertebrates along the U.S. West coast B.R. Broitman, C.A. Blanchette, B.A. Menge, J. Lubchenco, P.A. Raimondi, C. Krenz, M. Foley, D. Lohse and S.D. Gaines" which is in press.

Sampling, Processing and Quality Control Methods

Step by Step Procedures
Step 1:  
Description:

The plots show the time series of monthly means and recruitment climatologies expressed as the number of individuals per tuffy/plate per day. The raw time series of monthly recruitment from PISCO were calculated as the average of all available tuffies/plates recovered at the end of each month. In the case of recruitment climatologies, monthly standardized anomalies were averaged to estimate the long-term anomaly during each month of the year.

Sampling Area And Frequency:
All data corresponds to larval collectors deployed by PISCO on exposed rocky shores and located on the mid intertidal zone across a grand total of 26 sites Along the U.S. West coast from central Oregon to southern California. The data covers a total of 9 years of monthly field monitoring with the earliest time series beginning January 1997 and the latest ending December 30, 2005.
Sampling Description:
This data is derived from the PISCO: intertidal: Coastal Biodiversity Surveys: Quadrat Surveys. Raimondi P, Blanchette C, and Miner M. . PISCO: Intertidal: Coastal Biodiversity Surveys: Quadrat Surveys. KNB Data Registry: urn:lsid:knb.ecoinformatics.org:pisco_cbs:56:17 (http://knb.ecoinformatics.org/knb/metacat/pisco_cbs.56.17/knb).
