Fifteen sites were dived in the Salomon Islands (not to be confused with the Solomon Islands). Those dived on 2015-04-22 (BiSa84-85), 04-23 (BiSa88), 04-24 (BiSa91), and 04-25 (BiSa92-94) have been included on below (n=7 sites), with those surveyed+sampled on 04-26 (BiSa97-98), 04-28 (BiSa102), 04-29 (BiSa103-106), and 04-30 (BiSa107) included on this page.
BiSa84 (2015-04-22) Six Seriatopora spp. (ChSe105-110) colonies were sampled from this windward fringing reef; neither P. acuta nor P. damicornis were observed there.
BiSa85 (2015-04-22) I did not dive at this leeward lagoonal patch reef.
BiSa88 (2015-04-23) Both P. acuta/damicornis (ChPd106-113; n=8) and Seriatopora spp. (ChSe120-124; n=5) were sampled at this leeward lagoonal patch reef.
BiSa91 (2015-04-24) Twelve P. acuta/damicornis (ChPd116-127) were sampled from this leeward backreef. Seriatopora spp. were not observed. These images were not Photoshopped….the corals really were presenting some bizarre fluorescent colors!
BiSa92 (2015-04-25) Although P. acuta/damicornis were not observed at this windward forereef, Seriatopora spp. colonies were, and two were sampled (ChSe132-133).
BiSa93 (2015-04-25) Although P. acuta/damicornis were not observed at this windward forereef, Seriatopora spp. colonies were, and four were sampled (ChSe134-137).
BiSa94 (2015-04-25) Both P. acuta/damicornis (n=7: ChPd128-134) and Seriatopora spp. (n=4; ChSe138-141) were sampled at this leeward lagoonal patch reef.
