  MARINe Biodiversity Surveys  
 
 
 
 

The Biodiversity Surveys provide detailed information about biodiversity and community structure. They are conducted at sites from Alaska to Mexico annually or every few years by a group from University of California Santa Cruz. The Survey was designed to measure diversity and abundance of algal and invertebrate communities living on the rocky intertidal, western coast of temperate North America.
