Abstract
This dataset contains relative abundance (counts?) of operational taxonomic units (OTUs) from Sumbiodinium samples collected from three coral species (S. siderea, S. radians, and P. strigosa) at nine sites across four latitudes along the Belize MBRS in 2014 and 2015. These sites were previously characterized into three thermally distinct regimes (lowTP, modTP, highTP) and exhibited variations in coral species diversity and richness. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the full dataset description in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'. The most current version of this dataset is available at: https://www.bco-dmo.org/dataset/734674
