Brief description

In situ time-lapse photography was used to characterise movement and feeding preferences of the Pacific crown-of-thorns starfish (Acanthaster cf. solaris) in the northern and southern Great Barrier Reef in 2015.

This record describes the data accompanying the publication (in press): Homing behaviour by destructive crown-of-thorns starfish is triggered by local availability of coral prey.

Data files are:
1) CoTS movement and behavioural observations
2) CoTS individual movement tracks (per image) from time-lapse photography
3) feeding electivity on coral species by CoTS from time-lapse photography
