Seed biomass from shallow coastal water areas from Texas through Alabama, 2013-2015


Publication Date


DeMarco, K., Hillmann, E., and La Peyre, M., 2017, Seed biomass from shallow coastal water areas from Texas through Alabama, 2013-2015: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This projects primary goal was to provide data on biomass of potential seed resources located within shallow water coastal areas within fresh to saline coastal waters of the northern Gulf of Mexico. The data set provides biomass of seeds, by species or lowest practical taxon from 2013, 2014 and 2015 across 384 randomly selected sites located in shallow water coastal areas. The data were collected between June and September of each year. This data set can be merged with a dataset which reports submerged aquatic vegetation and environmental data collected at the same time (La Peyre et al. 2017; This project was co-funded by the South Central Climate Adaptation Science Center and the Gulf Coast Prairie [...]

The data's primary goal was to help inform carrying capacity models based on estimates of waterfowl food located in these regions. These data may be used to examine seed biomass and species identity within shallow water coastal habitats in this region.
