Abstract

There is a critical need for accurate data in order to make decisions regarding the construction, emplacement, and further development of artificial reefs in the State of Florida. This study looked a biotic and abiotic parameters of articifial reefs. A data matrix listing reefs on the vertical axis and the associated biotic and a biotic data or attributes available from published and non-pub1ished sources on the horizontal axis created: 1) a compilation of what data were available; 2) an indication of the completeness and extensiveness of the data; 3) a summary of the descriptive statistics of the data; 4) a preliminary analysis of the relationship among the biotic and abiotic parameters through correlation analysis; 5) some preliminary modeling of the artificial reefs to form the basis of prediction through stepwise and multiple linear regression analysis.
