Supplemental Information

Analysis of variance (two-way ANOVA) for benthic cover of dominant benthic groups during non-upwelling and upwelling at the exposed and sheltered site in Gayraca Bay.

Season (upwelling, non-upwelling) and exposure (exposed, sheltered) as treatments, post-hoc pair-wise comparisons of the group means via Bonferroni’s tests (df = degrees of freedom; F = F-value; p = probability level, significance levels are *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, *** p < 0.001).

DOI: 10.7287/peerj.preprints.258v1/supp-1

Analysis of variance (one-way ANOVA) and Kruskal-Wallis tests for differences in photosynthesis (net and gross) within major functional primary producers in Gayraca Bay.

Post-hoc pair-wise comparisons of the group means via Bonferroni’s planned comparison tests (ANOVA) or pair-wise comparisons of the group medians via Dunn’s multiple comparisons tests (Kruskal-Wallis tests). a indicates log-transformed data, b indicates Kruskal-Wallis tests (df = degrees of freedom; F = F-value; H = H-value; p = probability level, significance levels are *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, *** p < 0.001).

DOI: 10.7287/peerj.preprints.258v1/supp-2

Kruskal-Wallis tests for differences in contribution to benthic oxygen fluxes (net and gross) between major functional primary producers in Gayraca Bay.

Post-hoc pair-wise comparisons of the group medians via Dunn’s multiple comparisons tests (CCA = crustose coralline algae; df = degrees of freedom; H = H-value; p = probability level, significance levels are *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, *** p < 0.001).

Analysis of variance (one-way ANOVA) and Kruskal-Wallis tests of contribution to benthic oxygen fluxes (net and gross) within major functional primary producers in Gayraca Bay.

Post-hoc pair-wise comparisons of the group means via Bonferroni’s planned comparison tests (ANOVA) or pair-wise comparisons of the group medians via Dunn’s multiple comparisons tests (Kruskal-Wallis tests). a indicates log-transformed data, b indicates Kruskal-Wallis tests (df = degrees of freedom; F = F-value; H = H-value; p = probability level, significance levels are *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, *** p < 0.001).

Analysis of variance (two-way ANOVA) for overall benthic oxygen fluxes (net and gross) during non-upwelling and upwelling at the exposed and sheltered site in Gayraca Bay.

Season (upwelling, non-upwelling) and exposure (exposed, sheltered) as treatments, (df = degrees of freedom; F = F-value; p = probability level, significance levels are *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, *** p < 0.001).

DOI: 10.7287/peerj.preprints.258v1/supp-5

Analysis of variance (two-way ANOVA) for overall benthic oxygen fluxes (net and gross) during the upwelling 2011 and 2012 at the exposed and sheltered site in Gayraca Bay.

Time (upwelling 2011, upwelling 2012) and exposure (exposed, sheltered) as treatments, post-hoc pair-wise comparisons of the group means via Bonferroni’s tests (df = degrees of freedom; F = F-value; p = probability level, significance levels are *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, *** p < 0.001).
