Data from: Moving beyond linear food chains: trait-mediated indirect interactions in a rocky intertidal food web

Geoffrey C. Trussell, Catherine M. Matassa & Patrick J. Ewanchuk
In simple, linear food chains, top predators can have positive indirect effects on basal resources by causing changes in the traits (e.g. behaviour, feeding rates) of intermediate consumers. Although less is known about trait-mediated indirect interactions (TMIIs) in more complex food webs, it has been suggested that such complexity dampens trophic cascades. We examined TMIIs between a predatory crab (Carcinus maenas) and two ecologically important basal resources, fucoid algae (Ascophyllum nodosum) and barnacles (Semibalanus balanoides),...
