Abstract
This dataset includes information on tidepool attributes by date as well as ecological survey data for each seasonal survey. Data include cover and counts of algae and mobile invertebrates. Sampling took place in 2017 and 2018 at tide pools located in three regions along the California (USA) coast: (1) Bodega Head, Sonoma County (38.31°N, 123.07°W); (2) Kenneth Norris Rancho Marino Reserve and Hazards Canyon Reef, San Luis Obispo County (35.54°N, 121.09°W and 35.29°N, 128.88°W, respectively); and (3) Corona del Mar State Beach, Orange County (33.59°N, 117.87°W). In the fall of 2017, initial surveys and measurements were conducted quantifying physical attributes, including surface area, volume, and height on the shore. Surveys were repeated every three months until immediately prior to the establishment of grazing experiments at each site in the summer of 2018. During the quarterly surveys, consumer abundances, nutrient fluxes, oxygen fluxes, and photosynthetic biomass in each tide pool were quantified. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the full dataset description in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.
