Data from: Climate change and body size shift in Mediterranean bivalve assemblages: unexpected role of biological invasions

Rafał Nawrot, Paolo G. Albano, Devapriya Chattopadhyay & Martin Zuschin
Body size is a synthetic functional trait determining many key ecosystem properties. Reduction in average body size has been suggested as one of the universal responses to global warming in aquatic ecosystems. Climate change, however, coincides with human-enhanced dispersal of alien species and can facilitate their establishment. We address effects of species introductions on the size structure of recipient communities using data on Red Sea bivalves entering the Mediterranean Sea through the Suez Canal. We...
