Data from: Flat and complex temperate reefs provide similar support for fish: evidence for a unimodal species-habitat relationship

Avery B. Paxton, Emily A. Pickering, Alyssa M. Adler, J. Christopher Taylor & Charles H. Peterson
Structural complexity, a form of habitat heterogeneity, influences the structure and function of ecological communities, generally supporting increased species density, richness, and diversity. Recent research, however, suggests the most complex habitats may not harbor the highest density of individuals and number of species, especially in areas with elevated human influence. Understanding nuances in relationships between habitat heterogeneity and ecological communities is warranted to guide habitat-focused conservation and management efforts. We conducted fish and structural habitat...
