Pacific Rocky Intertidal Monitoring: Trends and Synthesis
We would like to give special thanks to Michael Frenock (Oregon State University) for tremendous assistance in the development of the MARINe MySQL database, for continual enhancement of the interactive map and graphing tool on pacificrockyintertidal.org, and for the development and improvements to many aspects of seastarwasting.org. We’d also like to thank Ben Miner (Western Washington University) for technical assistance in generating the trend graphs used throughout the web report.
This study would not have been possible without the assistance and understanding of the Project Technical Officer, Mary Elaine Helix.
