We counted and identified fishes in the mangrove fringe of about 40 sites in Baja California Sur and the Galapagos islands. The communities of fishes at all of these sites form 12 statistically distinct groups (simprof analysis). This dataset explores the similiarities among these groups.
At each site, we performed visual surveys while snorkeling underwater transects (50 m long × 2 m wide) along the mangrove fringe, recording the species, size class, and abundance of all fishes observed.
- Scope And Content
The XLSX spreadsheet file includes a tab, “Gal-BCS Fish Surveys Cleaned”. This is a version of the base dataset, with uncertain ids removed. These data were used for the visualization in: Distant mangroves share similar fish communities, while neighbors can be different. http://doi.org/10.13022/M3C015
