Modelling the larval dispersal of Acanthaster planci

Abstract

Numerical models capable of simulating the hydrodynamics associated with large assemblages of reefs are applied to the larval dispersal of Acanthaster planci. Larval distributions which result from passive transportation have been simulated and the resulting patterns of dispersal are compared with the distribution of adults and the observed pattern of… (More)
