Description
Descriptions
  1. Type: full

    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.

  2. Type: note

    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.
