Full description

The goal of this project is to integrate the research developed on benthic primary producers (BPPs) in shallow coastal waters of the Kimberley. This includes understanding variations in the physical environment and biogeochemical conditions, as well as the spatial distribution of BPPs and their contribution to productivity in the region. Research objectives were:
- Develop a geographic information system (GIS) for spatially and temporally explicit baseline information on habitats and processes.
- Characterise reef platform and adjacent habitats based on environmental gradients.
- Identify key physical and biological drivers that influence distribution of benthic primary producers.
- Identify methods for integration of available data and upscaling to visited and unvisited sites.
- Contribute to improving the regional understanding of marine biodiversity, distribution and resilience.
- Develop baseline maps to go toward cost-effective methods for long-term monitoring of benthic primary-producer habitats and associated environmental processes.

Data from KMRP projects 1.3.1, 1.4, 1.2.5, 2.2.3 and 2.2.4 were used in this project. ESRI Geodatabase and shapefiles are the output data for this project.

3 shapefile names - Thalassia_hemprichii_final.shp, tallonhabmapf.shp and Enhalus_acoroides_final.shp

Lineage

*Seagrass Distribution*
Species distribution modelling techniques were used to predict and map current Thalassia hemprechii and Enhalus acoroides distributions. Presences records from WAMSI projects 2.2.3 and 2.2.4 were collated along with additional presence records within the North-west region of Australia which were downloaded from the Atlas of Living Australia and Global Biodiversity Information Facility.

*Benthic primary productivity*
Raw data was sourced from WAMSI projects 2.2.3 and 2.2.4, which estimated seasonal and spatial variability in seagrass and macroalgae at sites in Sunday and Tallon Island Group, Cygnet Bay. This included a benthic survey using geo-referenced photo quadrats to map species distribution across Tallon Island intertidal platform. Nine distinct habitat classes were determined. These included four single classes where a clear dominant biota was present, and five mixed classes where more than one biota type dominated the benthos
