Abstract
This dataset includes percent cover of benthic functional groups in the Phoenix Islands Protected Area (PIPA). Percent cover of reef-building coral was quantified using photoquadrat transects conducted during 2009, 2012, 2015, and 2018 following standard Pacific coral reef monitoring protocols. Areas of study include: Phoenix Islands, Kiribati. Kanton Island (2.8 S, 171.6 W), Rawaki Island (3.7 S 170.7 W), Nikumaroro Island (4.7 S, 174.5 W), Orona Island (4.5 S, 172.2 W). These data were published in Fox et al., 2021 (DOI: 10.1029/2021GRL094128). For a complete list of measurements, refer to the full dataset description in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.
