We have recently finished assembling and cleaning our data from the last field season (summer 2017) and have archived it with the Knowledge Network for Biocomplexity (KNB) database. These data, however, are currently private but we are happy to communicate about what we have until they are openly available. In such instances, please contact Ginny Eckert ( or Tiff Stephens ( with questions.


We have data in the following areas:

Sea otter counts and densities

Seagrass (Zostera marina) density, biomass, and morphometrics

Sediment organic and inorganic matter content from seagrass beds

Epiphyte and epifauna counts and biomass from seagrass beds

Clam community assemblages (intertidal); variable habitats

Crab community assemblages in seagrass beds

Fish community assemblages in seagrass beds

Number of sea otter pits in the intertidal

Clamshell litter used as an estimation of the cause of death in clams

Environmental data; temperature, salinity, nutrients
