Title JAE_Grouper_Decoy_Data
Downloaded 13 times
Description This dataset includes the five foraging metrics quantified during predator and control trials including: (a) percentage of seagrass consumed/hour, (b) bites on seagrass/hour, (c) bites on benthos/hour, (d) individual feeding rates (bites/minute) and (e) forager size (cm). The data is aggregated by plot and by distance from the predator decoy. Additionally, we include the number of natural predators observed from video footage aggregated at the site level and at the distance level. Metadata is included in the file describing each column.

Title JAE_Video_Data
Downloaded 10 times
Description This dataset includes observations from video footage during both predator and control treatments. Each line in the datasheet is a single foraging episode by a herbivore on either the seagrass assay or on the benthos surrounding the assay. The foray number and bites taken are entered in separate columns and the individual foraging rate (bites/second) was calculated and included in another column. Predators and mesopredators that were observed in the field of view are recorded on separate rows. The number of territorial damselfish observed in the area surrounding the seagrass assay at each distance from the predator decoy is shown in a separate column. Metadata describing the data is included in the file.
