This dataset contains data of the occurrence of seagrass species which was recorded at the Monitoring Sites 1000 Projects: Coastal Area Survey (Seagrass beds). The annual survey was carried out with six places of Japanese coast from north (Hokkaido) to south (Okinawa). In addition, the data about reference specimens (seagrass and macrozoobenthos) in the survey every five years is included. The data of this dataset is derived from the data file of the Monitoring Sites 1000 Projects: Coastal Area Survey. The data file includes the information about quantity data of seagrass (a cover degree, biomass).
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 190,266 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
