Title Data with maximum number of bivalve individuals, including unidentified individuals (XNI approach)
Downloaded 4 times
Description This table provides the raw numbers of living and dead specimens of all mollusc taxa that were recovered in benthic assemblages, listed separately for all censuses. The dataset includes the few dead bivalve and gastropod specimens that could not be identified and were thus excluded from all analyses. Individual numbers are uncorrected for disarticulated valves of single bivalve individuals. As each empty bivalve valve was assumed to represent a unique individual ("XNI approach"), this dataset thus provides the maximum number of bivalve individuals.

Title Data with minimum number of bivalve individuals (MNI approach)
Downloaded 5 times
Description This table provides the numbers of living and dead specimens of all mollusc taxa that were recovered in benthic assemblages, listed separately for all censuses. Individual numbers are corrected for disarticulated valves of single bivalve individuals by assuming that both empty valves of all dead bivalve individuals were present in a sample ("the MNI approach"). This dataset thus provides the minimum number of bivalve individuals.

Title Data with corrected number of bivalve individuals (sampling domain 3x size of observed collections)
Downloaded 4 times
Description This table provides the numbers of living and dead individuals of all mollusc taxa that were recovered in benthic assemblages, listed separately for all censuses. Individual numbers are corrected for disarticulated valves of single bivalve individuals by assuming sampling domains three times the size of an observed collection. This dataset was used for all analyses presented in the manuscript.
