These data were compiled to better determine when the mangrove die-off began. NDVI values of 0.2 or greater correspond to live mangrove cover. These data suggest the mangrove die-off may have started in 2008 and was exacerbated in following years with some recovery in 2013. Live area was calculated by determining the area of the die-off region with NDVI values greater than 0.2. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the supplemental document 'Field_names.pdf', and a full dataset description is included in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.

The role of season and salinity in influencing barnacle distributions in two adjacent coastal mangrove lagoons Starczak, Victoria R.; Perez-Brunius, Paula; Levine, Hazel E.; Gyory, Joanna; Pineda, Jesus (University of Miami - Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, 2011-07-01)Barnacles are often abundant on roots and branches of mangrove trees in tidal channels and coastal lagoons of the Pacific coast of Panama. Yet, in some coastal lagoons, barnacles are absent. We investigated pre- and ...
