Data from: Size, weapons and armor as predictors of competitive outcomes in fossil and contemporary marine communities

Lee Hsiang Liow, Trond Reitan, Kjetil Voje, Paul Taylor & Emanuela Di Martino
Inter- and intraspecific competition are usually observed over a few generations but their patterns and consequences are seldom tractable in natural systems over longer timescales relevant to macroevolutionary change. Here, we use win-draw-lose competitive overgrowths for a marine benthic community of encrusting bryozoans that have evolved together in New Zealand for at least 2.3 million years to investigate battles for substrate space, a resource that is limiting for these colonial organisms. Using more than 6000...
