  • These data describe the abundance of giant kelp, Macrocystis pyrifera, at Santa Cruz Island (north shore), Santa Barbara Channel, California. The number of Macrocystis fronds were recorded along permanent transects at 11 sites, and sampling is designed to complement both the SBC LTER Reef Kelp Forest Community Survey study and other long-term data from Santa Cruz Island. Sampling began in 2011, and this dataset is updated annually.
