Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Utilising two portable field-flumes that simulate unidirectional versus oscillatory flow regimes, we compared sediment stabilisation ability of monospecific patches of two native (Thalassia testudinum and Syringodium filiforme) and one invasive (Halophila stipulacea) seagrass species in situ, and compared the effect of three levels of megaherbivore grazing: ungrazed, lightly grazed and intensively grazed Thalassia testudinum.
