Data from: Herbivore control in connected seascapes: habitat determines when population regulation occurs in the life history of a key herbivore

Jordi Boada, Simone Farina, Rohan Arthur, Javier Romero, Patricia Prado & Teresa Alcoverro
Herbivore outbreaks often trigger catastrophic overgrazing events in marine macrophyte ecosystems. The sea urchin Paracentrotus lividus, the dominant herbivore of shallow Mediterranean seascapes, is capable of precipitating shifts to barrens when its populations explode. P. lividus is found ubiquitously in rocky macroalgal communities and in sandy seagrass meadows of Posidonia oceanica, two of the most important subtidal habitats in the Mediterranean. We explored if habitat-specific regulation across the principal stages of the urchin life cycle...
