Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Contains absolute abundances of urchin and coral fossil data (by species) within each sample for each of four reef sediment cores. Samples are 5cm slices of each core. For urchin species, corrected abundances can be computed by dividing urchin spine weight by weight of 500um-2mm sediment size fraction. For coral species, relative abundances can be computed by dividing coral skeletal weight by total coral weight.
