Appendix B. Supplementary results from our repeated measures ANOVA to assess the biomass of grunts around study colonies and from out SIMPER analysis for benthic community dissimilarity between study locations.

Table B2. Results from SIMPER analysis for the contribution of dissimilarity between High Biomass vs. Low Biomass sites for each benthic group. Contribution is the mean percent dissimilarity contribution from each benthic category. Cumulative contribution represents the total dissimilarity contribution from multiple groups.
