Data were part of a research project that wanted - amongst others - to quantify the spatial and temporal variation of the benthic rocky reef assemblages in the Marine Protected Area (MPA) of Capraia Island (Tuscan Archipelago) and a bordering non-protected area. more

Data are from rocky bottom photographic samples at 5 m depth Sampling location was Capraia Island Marine Protected Area, NW Mediterranean, Tuscany Archipelago, 43°02'.40N, 09°50'.14E Sampling was repeated in each of 3 Protected and Unprotected Shores (stretches of shore about 30m long, hundreds of m apart) 2 Sites (Stretches of shore 3-5 m long, tens of m apart) were sampled in each Shore 5 Replicates (photographic samples on 20x20 cm quadrates) were sampled in each Site Sampling was repeated at three different dates
