About -
According to the authors, this checklist is the result of a study in December 2008 over a total of 10 belt transects of about 5 × 100m that were laid randomly (wherever the vegetation cover was predominantly found) in 10 different regions at different distance gradients from shoreline till the beginning of the lagoon boundary. Every plant species found along the 10 transects were recorded by observation while walking.
