Abstract
Characterization of the degree to which sea urchins have excavated (bio-eroded) the calcium carbonate skeleton of Clathromorphum nereostratum, a long-lived reef-building coralline alga that forms the structural base of the kelp forest. Estimates were derived from field measurements, photoquadrat surveys, and collections, all performed via SCUBA. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the full dataset description in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'. The most current version of this dataset is available at: https://www.bco-dmo.org/dataset/755299
