Because we surveyed the Three Brothers region so extensively, I am breaking up the pages by day: 2015-03-17 through 03-20 (this page; sites BiTb27 to BiTb37), 2015-03-21 through 03-24 (sites BiTb38-BiTb49), and 03-25 to 03-28 (BiCc50 to BiTb58).

THREE BROTHERS (“Tb;” 2015-03-17 to 03-20)

BiTb27 (2015-03-17) Neither Seriatopora spp. nor P. acuta/P. damicornis were present at this site; instead collected other pocilloporids for a collaborator.

BiTb28 (2015-03-18) Neither Seriatopora spp. nor P. acuta/P. damicornis were present at this leeward channel reef site; instead collected other pocilloporids for a collaborator.

BiTb29 (2015-03-18) Although P. acuta/P. damicornis were not present at this site, Seriatopora spp. were, and three colonies (ChSe06-08) were sampled. I also collected other pocilloporids for a collaborator.

BiTb29 sampled Seriatopora spp. colonies (ChSe06-08). No images were taken of ChSe08, as it was collected by a collaborator.

BiTb30 (2015-03-18) P. acuta/P. damicornis (ChPd16-20) aand Seriatopora spp. (ChSe09-10) were observed at this leeward fringing reef.

BiTb30 sampled P. acuta (ChPa16-18) colonies. Please note that two other colonies (ChPd19-20) were also sampled from this site, though neither was photographed or genotyped.

BiTb30 sampled Seriatopora spp. colonies (ChSe09-10)

BiTb31 (2015-03-18) I did not dive at this lagoonal patch reef, but two Seriatopora spp. colonies (ChSe11-12) were sampled on my behalf.

BiTb32 (2015-03-19) One P. acuta (ChPa21) and one Seriatopora sp. (ChSe13) were sampled at this lagoonal bank reef.

BiTb32 sampled Seriatopora sp. (ChSe13)

BiTb33 (2015-03-19) Neither P. acuta/P. damicornis nor Seriatopora spp. were observed at this lagoonal bank reef site; other pocilloporids were instead sampled or a collaborator.

BiTb34 (2015-03-19) Both P. acuta/damicornis (ChPd22-25) and Seriatopora spp. (ChSe14-15) were observed at this leeward fringing reef.

BiTb34 sampled P. acuta (ChPa22), P. damicornis (ChPd24) colonies, and P. acuta/damicornis (genotyped not determined: ChPd23 and 25).
