Description

Data for predation of two snail species (Cerithideopis californica and Cerithideopsis montagnei) by a species of whelk (Thais kiosquiformis) at different levels of potential escape structure.  Three types of cage treatments were used which varied the amount of structure.  

  1. Trunk: cages included mangrove trunks.
  2. Trunk_Pneum: cages included both mangrove trunks and pneumatophore roots.
  3. Unstructured: cages did not include mangrove trunks or pneumatophore roots.
