Data from 'Global drivers of reef fish growth'

This entry refers to Morais and Bellwood 'Global drivers of reef fish growth' in the journal Fish and Fisheries. It encompasses two datasets: 1) a compilation of Von Bertalanffy growth parameters, morphological and behavioural traits, and length-weight regression coefficients for reef fishes at a global scale; and 2) predictions of growth trajectories (as represented by a standardized growth coefficient) for combinations of morphological and behavioural traits, as well as varying temperature settings.

      Datasets 1 and 2 (Supporting information - DS1 and DS2) are available in comma-separated values (.csv) format. Metadata (variable descriptions) for both datasetsare included in MS word (.docx) and Open Document (.odt) formats. A KML (Keyhole Markup Language) file can be opened in Google Earth or XML to view data point coordinates.
