Description
These data were part of a study investigating the general statement that Marine Protected Area’s (MPA’s) have an effect on the population and assemblages of benthic organisms in the intertidal zone of rocky shores. The effects were evaluated over a variety of spatial scales more

Data are from rocky shore visual estimates at highshore and midshore intertidal level Sampling location: Giannutri island Marine Protected Area, NW Mediterranean, Tuscany Archipelago, 42°15'.00N, 11°06'.26E 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 (visual counts on 20x20 cm quadrates) were sampled in each Site
