Epifaunal communities associated with hard-substrate seabeds in southern British Columbia: Fs97-6/3163E-PDF

"Benthic video surveys were collected in Western Vancouver Island (WVI), Queen Charlotte Strait (QCS), Johnstone Strait (JS), Jervis Inlet (JI) and Sechelt Inlet (SI). Substrate composition and epifaunal abundance were estimated at 2-m segment intervals for each video survey (~100m length). Substrate categories consisted of fine sediments (<4mm), pebble (4-64 mm), cobble (64-256mm), shell hash (shell fragments), boulder (>256mm), skeletal sponge-matrix, veneer overlying bedrock, bedrock, and rock wall. Substrate composition and taxa abundance were plotted in three-dimensions against water depth and transect distance. The relationship between substrate and epifauna were discussed for each video survey"--Abstract, p. vii.
