Data from: Consumer control as a common driver of coastal vegetation worldwide

Qiang He & Brian R. Silliman
Rapid, global anthropogenic alteration of food webs in ecosystems necessitates a better understanding of how consumers regulate natural communities. We provide a global synthesis of consumer control of vegetation in coastal wetlands, where the domineering role of physical factors such as nutrient and salinity, rather than consumers, has been emphasized for decades.
