Species composition and biomass data were collected during a spatially comprehensive monitoring campaign (Synoptic Intertidal Benthic Survey, SIBES) between June and October of 2008–2012 (Bijleveld et al. 2012, Compton et al. 2013). This sampling program covers the entire intertidal of the Dutch Wadden Sea and consists of gridded samples taken at 500 m intervals and additional random samples (~4,500 samples per year). As samples were collected from June to September, sampling was conducted haphazardly in geographic space over these six weeks to ensure that there was no temporal bias in the sampling and thus in our estimates.
