Title: CRCP-Surveillance of wild and outplanted A.cervicornis
Short Name: Surveillance of wild and outplanted staghorn coral (A.cervicornis)
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 2011
Abstract:

The threatened status (both ecologically and legally) of Caribbean staghorn coral, Acropora cervicornis, has prompted rapidly expanding efforts in culture and restocking, although tissue loss diseases and predation continue to affect populations. In this study, surveillance of disease and predation conditions was used to compare dynamics and conditions in both restored and extant wild populations in order to better understand characteristics of restored populations and inform the possible implementation of differential health management strategies for wild vs. restored populations. Surveys at multiple sites with colonies were conducted every 2 to 4 weeks during two summer seasons to document disease and predation prevalence and disease incidence. Additional work in a third year focused on quantifying the effects of fireworm predation on restored corals, including healing times. In addition to surveillance, experimental tests were performed for possible proactive interventions designed to mitigate both disease and fireworm predation conditions

Purpose:

To compare disease and predation effects between wild and outplanted/restored colonies of Acropora cervicornis

Notes:

This project had both monitoring/assessment and experimental components.

This dataset pertains to a 2 year, multifaceted study comparing disease and predation dynamics between restored and wild populations of Acropora cervicornis
