    Abstract

    Annual ecological monitoring across the Turneffe Atoll Marine Reserve as part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System Synoptic Monitoring Program is imperative to assess any change, improvement, or decline in the health and function of the Atoll’s ecosystems. Long-term monitoring sites are selected for seagrass (9), mangrove (5) and coral reef ecosystems (9). The Turneffe Atoll Marine Reserve was established in 2012 with a full management presence in 2016. This report describes the status of TAMR ecosystems from 2015 to 2016 so that the information disseminated can bridge science to policy.
