Description
Data published in 1911 of a survey of the marine benthic fauna and flora of Buzzards Bay and Vineyard Sound, MA conducted between 1903 and 1907. more

Between 1903 and 1907 a comprehensive survey of the marine benthic fauna and flora of Buzzards Bay and Vineyard Sound, MA was conducted. During this study more than 460 dredge samples were taken and all collected taxa were identified. These data, along with a variety of habitat and environmental data, were published in 1911. In addition, the publication contains information on all other marine species in the region at that time that were not or could not be collected using a dredge. All data were extracted from the published report and converted to electronic format. In addition, station location data were converted to standard Latitude and Longitude format. Where possible taxonomic identifications were updated. An Access database of the complete dataset, including both original and updated taxonomic information, station descriptions, habitat information, and notes on species is available on the SERC website. The original publication is available in PDF format through the Smithsonian Library as G. M. Bowers. 1913. A biological survey of the waters of Woods Hole and vicinity. The original dataset, provided by OBIS-USA, contains all distribution records. The dataset in OBIS Seamap is a subset of the original dataset, only containing marine mammal, seabird and/or sea turtle records.
