The Hinkley Point data set has recently been used by Hideyasu Shimadzu for a paper titled "Measuring temporal turnover in ecological communities
", published in Methods in Ecology and Evolution
(2015). The data set as used by Shimadzu (which runs from January 1981 to August 2012) can be downloaded here
. No commercial use whatsoever may be made of the data without prior written permission from Pisces Conservation Ltd; a charge will be made for such use.
The full data from the Hinkley Point sampling include the main abundance data for fish and macrocrustaceans at Hinkley Point in the Bristol Channel, collected since January 1981 to date. Each monthly sample was collected using the same effort and method. Thus the time series reflect real change in abundance at one locality through time.
These data are the property of Pisces Conservation Ltd. The data are made available at no cost for genuine research purposes.
