Ha'apai-one of my favorite archipelagos in the world. Eleven days (Sept. 11-21) were spent surveying the reefs of this remote, scarcely populated region. If you would like the photos in a more convenient format, such as an iPhoto library, please email me (andersonblairmayfield@gmail.com), and I will post it on Google Drive (SquareSpace does not permit files larger than 20 MB). 

TOHA01 (Sept. 11, 2013)

TOHA01 sampled colonies (n=6). There was no photo of colony 4 (Pocillopora acuta), which was analyzed in full: JMP Excel supplemental data. Dive not dive at TOHA02 (same day).


TOHA03 (Sept. 12, 2013)-no sampled colonies


TOHA04 (Sept. 12, 2013)-no colonies sampled. No habitat shots were taken of site TOHA05 (also surveyed on Sept. 12, 2013), nor were these images of the three corals samples from TOHA05 (colonies 7-9).

colony 7 (Pocillopora acuta): JMP Excel supplemental data

colony 8 (Pocillopora damicornis): JMP Excel supplemental data

colony 9: this sample was not processed due the DNA extraction having failed. Supplemental data can be found here.


TOHA06 (Sept. 13, 2013)
