The energetic costs of living in the surf and impacts on zonation of shell use in hermit crabs

Data of the manuscript: The energetic costs of living in the surf and impacts on zonation of shell used in hermit crabs. The files include data shell size occupied by the hermit crab Calcinus californiensis in wave-exposed and protected areas. We investigated if a behavioral choice could explain the size of two shells (Nerita scabricosta and Stramonita biserialis) used in sites with different wave action; thus, data of shell size preference in static and bidirectional water flow.
