Data used for the article "A Pacific oyster invasion transforms shellfish reef structure by changing the development of associated seaweeds"
Submitted to Estuarine Coastal and Shelf science in 2019
A Pacific oyster invasion transforms the structure of intertidal blue mussel reefs.
Native blue mussel reefs promote the development of habitat forming seaweed meadows.
Pacific oysters promote green algae mats and decrease the development of the native habitat forming seaweed.
