Spatio-temporal patterns in diversity of a fish assemblage along the Norwegian Skagerrak coast

  title={Spatio-temporal patterns in diversity of a fish assemblage along the Norwegian Skagerrak coast},
  author={John S. Gray},
Time series from 1953 to 1997 of 34 fish species sampled by beach seine at 69 stations along the Norwegian Skagerrak coast were analysed to descr~be spatial patterns of temporal variation in species richness and d~versity. Principal Components Analyses were performed on species richness, total abundance and the Shannon diversity index. Spatially consistent temporal variation was detected on a scale exceeding that of the individual fjords. Two main spatial patterns were detected: one for the… CONTINUE READING
