Metadata 1) Title : Vermetid Counts on Long Term Reefs 2) Abstract : Vermetid gastropods were counted were calculated on the 192 reefs in 2007, 2009 and on the 198 reefs in 2012. For each reef, the number of Dendropoma maxima were counted. These data are meant to begin a census of the vermetids present in each site and on each reef to examine spatial and temporal variation in vermetid abundances. 3) Site : VOW, VIW, VOM, VIM, VOE, VIE, MOE, MIE, TOW, TIW, TOE, TIE 4) Experiment : LTR_VermetidCountsProtocol 5) Personnel Lead Investigator: Craig Osenberg, Jeff Shima Principal Contact: Jeff Shima, Craig Osenberg Other Investigators: 6) Protocol filename : Vermetid count 7) Keywords : 8) Variates (see table above) 9) Specie s filename Variate Description SI Units DATE Date data collected Day/Mon/Year OBSERV Initials of observer (Craig Osenberg, Jada White) CWO, JS SITE Site name VOW, VIW, VOM, VIM, VOE, VIE, MOE, MIE, TOW, TIW, TOE, TIE REEF Reef # 1 198 D. maximum counts Number 0 230

Materials : snorkel gear, dive slate Solutions/Reagents (if applicable): Procedure: A diver swims up to one of the patch reefs and counts all of the vermetids present on the reef.
