|Data Set General Information:|
||knb-lter-mcr.16.11 (in the knb Catalog System)
These data describe the genetics of recruiting Dascyllus trimaculatus. We first placed
two rows of 8 anemones in a region (the west side of the bay of Opunohu) previously devoid
of anemones. Anemones are 10 meters apart, the two rows are 100 meters apart. The row close
to the reef crest is called crest , or OUT, row, the row away from the crest and close to
the boat channel is called channel, or IN, row. The project started with the placement of
the anemones in the fall of 2000. Since then, we regularly clear the anemones of Dascyllus
and then collect newly settled fishes every morning. These fishes are later typed by
sequencing the mitochondrial control region. Fishes are labeled as follows: DTR IN 01010205.
This is a Dascyllus Trimaculatus collected on the channel row, first anemone, on January 2nd
2005. Anemones are numbered 1 to 8, from west to east.
These data are published in Bernardi, G., R. Beldade, S.J. Holbrook and R.J. Schmitt. 2012. Full-sibs in cohorts of newly settled coral reef fishes. PloS One 7(9):e44953.
