Dear Colleagues,

Our apologies but we would like to point out an important error in our paper. The first line of the results section should read "Grazing by snails increased tide pool seaweed species evenness (stats) and DECREASED biomass (stats)".

We very much appreciate our good friend Jarrett Byrnes for pointing out this important omission.

Cheers,

Geoff
