    The following datasets correspond with the Chase & Hoogenboom 2019 Diversity publication entitled "Differential occupation of available coral hosts by coral-dwelling damselfish (Pomacentridae) on Australia's Great Barrier Reef.”

    colony_level_dataaset_2016.csv - Colony level features of occupied and unoccupied colonies looking at the smaller scale patterns of five focal fish species (Chromis viridis, Dascyllus aruanus, Dascyllus reticulatus, Pomacentrus amboinensis and Pomacentrus moluccensis) occupying five common branching morphologies (Acropora intermedia, Acropora spathulata, Pocillopora damicornis, Seriatopora hystrix, and Stylophora pistialla)

    reef_seascape_dataaset_2016.csv - dataset of 50 x 5 m belt transects of 51 sites spread among 22 reefs looking at the larger scale prevalence of five focal fish species (Chromis viridisDascyllus aruanusDascyllus reticulatusPomacentrus amboinensis and Pomacentrus moluccensis) occupying five common branching morphologies (Acropora intermediaAcropora spathulataPocillopora damicornisSeriatopora hystrix, and Stylophora pistialla)
