Description
Descriptions
  1. Type: brief

    This dataset contains ecological and social data of two communities in Karkar Island (PNG) collected by Prof. Joshua Cinner (and team) of James Cook University between 2001 and 2017.

  2. Type: full

    The dataset includes ecological and social data collected in, and around, two coastal communities (Muluk and Wadau) in Karkar Island (PNG) across five intervals over 16 years. The ecological data contains estimates for structural complexity, coral cover, macro algae, epilithic algal matrix, and biomass estimates for key functional fish feeding groups (scrapers/excavators, grazers, browsers, macro-invertivores, micro-invertivores, piscivore-invertivores, piscivores, planktivores, and detritivores) at multiple sites and depths. The social data contains households responses of livelihood perceptions.

  3. Type: note

    The dataset is available as three individual spreadsheets in comma-separated values (.csv) format. Full methodology available in the associated publication (link to be provided).
