Abstract of the manuscript to which this dataset belongs to: "1. Our knowledge of the functional role of large herbivores is rapidly expanding, and the impact of grazing on species co-existence and non-native species expansion has been studied across ecosystems. However, experimental data on large grazer impacts on plant invasion in aquatic ecosystems are lacking.2. Since its introduction in 2002, the seagrass species Halophila stipulacea has rapidly expanded across the Eastern Caribbean, forming dense meadows...
