Appendix A. Plant, diatom and mollusk taxa collected from the coastal transect at Turkey Point, South Florida. Taxa are ordered by distance optima (in meters from coast) calculated by weighted-averaging. Also given for each taxon is its distance tolerance, number of occurrences in the 41 sites along the transect, and mean abundance when present.
