Three days (2014-11-14 to 11-16) were spent surveying and sampling the reefs of Vanikoro.


For images of the sampled Pocillopora spp. (SoPd88-104) and Seriatopora spp. colonies (SoSe124-148), click on the “Sampled Pocillopora spp. colonies: sites 32-69” and “Sampled Seriatopora spp. colonies: sites 32-69,” respectively. For high-resolution habitat maps, please go here.

SoVa46 (2014-11-15)

SoVa47 (2014-11-15 and 11-16) This site was dived three times because of the shear number of oddly pigmented corals. See sampled colony images for examples. However, this meant that I did not have the chance to dive at the three sites visited on 2014-11-16 (SoVa49-51).
