Data from: Managing seagrass resilience under cumulative dredging affecting light: predicting risk using dynamic Bayesian networks
Coastal development is contributing to ongoing declines of ecosystems globally. Consequently, understanding the risks posed to these systems, and how they respond to successive disturbances, is paramount for their improved management. We present a risk-based modelling framework for time varying complex systems centred around a dynamic Bayesian network (DBN). The impact on resilience of dredging disturbances is evaluated using a validated seagrass ecosystem DBN for meadows of the genera Amphibolis (Jurien Bay, WA, Australia), Halophila (Hay Point, Qld, Australia) and Zostera (Gladstone, Qld, Australia).
