Observed and modeled larval settlement of a reef fish to the Florida Keys

  title={Observed and modeled larval settlement of a reef fish to the Florida Keys},
  author={Su Sponaugle and Claire B. Paris and Kristen D. Walter and Vassiliki H. Kourafalou and Evelina D’Alessandro},
The bipartite life history of most marine organisms leads to complex patterns of replenishment in benthic populations. High variation in adult spawning, dynamic oceanographic currents, and often unknown larval behaviors create challenges in accurately predicting spatial and temporal patterns in the supply and settlement of pelagic larvae to nearshore juvenile habitats. Yet, understanding and predicting larval exchange underlies population dynamics, ecological interactions, and conservation… CONTINUE READING
