Growth rate of Peyssonnelid Algal Crusts was measured using terracotta settlement tiles at five sites across Lameshur Bay, St. John, USVI. Unglazed terracotta tiles (15 × 15 × 1 cm) originally were deployed to measure coral recruitment, and photographs of the tiles were re-purposed to provide an additional measure of the planar growth of PAC. Years for which photographs of settlement tiles were available to be analyzed for growth rate include 2009, 2011-2012, and 2014-2019.
