Description
Descriptions
  1. Type: full

    Dataset on kinematic measures of the fast-start of three damselfish species: Pomacentrus amboinensis, Pomacentrus chrusurus and Pomacentrus wardi. Our study determined whether the change in the chemical landscape associated with coral degradation affected the way three fish species use olfactory information to optimize their fast-start escape response. Data represent the kinematic response of three species of juvenile damselfishes to a drop stimulus after they had been exposed to seawater from two different habitats (live coral or dead-degraded coral) and a threat odour (seawater or a conspecific alarm odour) in a 2 x 2 design.

    The full methodology is available in the Open Access publication from the Related Publications link below.
