Life cycles and population dynamics
As insects belonging to the Endopterygota (or Holometabola), the life cycle of Chironomidae is divided into four distinct stages, i.e. egg, larva, pupa and imago. Notwithstanding the large number ofExpand

Reproduction and recruitment of scleractinian corals in a high-latitude coral community, Amakusa, southwestern Japan
Reproduction and recruitment in high-latitude coral populations in Japan have been little studied. A comprehensive study of the reproduction and early life history was conducted on nine commonExpand

Power fraction: A new explanation of relative abundance patterns in species-rich assemblages
Analysis of species abundance patterns in assemblages with relatively large number of species has been an important issue in community ecology for several decades. Following Preston's pioneeringExpand

Experimental analysis of recruitment in a scleractinian coral at high latitude
A set of field experiments were conducted to determine the patterns of dispersal and recruitment in the brooding scleractinian coral Pocillopora damicornis at high-latitude (32° N), tem- perateExpand
