Summary

This projects primary goal was to provide data on occurrence and abundance of SAV resources within the fresh to saline coastal waters of the northern Gulf of Mexico, and to relate these findings to key environmental variables. The data set provides the collected data from 2013, 2014 and 2015 on site location, discrete water quality, aquatic vegetation cover and biomass by species. The same 384 sites were collected each year, between June and September. This project was co-funded by the South Central Climate Adaptation Science Center and the Gulf Coast Prairie and the Gulf Coastal Plains and Ozarks Landscape Conservation Cooperatives.

Purpose

These data were collected to document the occurrence and abundance of SAV resources across the fresh to saline coastal marsh zones, including interior ponds along the northern Gulf of Mexico coast. The data may be used to evaluate SAV presence/absence by species, location and environmental variables.
