Growth and age across range extension region of Centrostephanus rodgersii in eastern Tasmania and morphometric comparison of urchins inhabiting kelp versus barrens habitats, Australia (2004-2005)

Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Oct 9, 2018 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

The barrens-forming sea urchin Centrostephanus rodgersii has undergone poleward range extension to eastern Tasmania. This data compares growth, morphology, reproductive investment and gonad indices between individuals inhabiting barrens ('barrens-maintaining' urchins') with those found on kelp beds ('barrens-forming' urchins) in north eastern Tasmania.

Data Records

The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 600 records. 1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.

  • Occurrence (core)
    600
  • ExtendedMeasurementOrFact 
    4800

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
