This dataset comes from a thesis consisting of a detailed taxonomic analysis of the benthic algal flora of the Suva Lagoon and Reef, as represented in herbarium and field collections. A total of 229 taxa are listed, comprising 7 Cyanophyceae, 71 Chlorophyceae, 24 Phaeophyceae and 127 Rhodophyceae. Of these, 6 represent new and undescribed species and 70 are new records for the Fijian flora.
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 344 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.
