The goal of this “BSM-Fiji” campaign, from 7 to 27 May 2007, was to sample algae, sponges and ascidians so as to analyse the region’s biodiversity. Sampling was carried out in the provinces of Bua, Macuata (Vanua Levu Island), Cakaudrauve (Ringgold atolls), Lomaiviti (N’Gau Islands) and Kaduvu. This campaign was part of the CRISP (Coral Reef InitiativeS for the Pacific) program and formed Component 2C2 of the project as one of the programs designed to foster biodiversity through research on new natural substances of marine origin.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 1,098 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
