1. In analysing the ecological conditions of an animal population we have above all to focus our attention upon the most sensitive stages within the life cycle of the animal, that is, the period of breeding and larval development. 
LARVAL ECOLOGY OF MARINE BENTHIC INVERTEBRATES: PALEOBIOLOGICAL IMPLICATIONS
TLDR
Studies of the larval ecology of fossil organisms can contribute greatly to the understanding of such roles by allowing us to race effects on evolutionary time scales.
A BRIEF REVIEW AND CRITIQUE OF ZOOPLANKTON SAMPLING METHODS: COPEPODOLOGY FOR THE LARVAL ECOLOGIST
TLDR
A brief review and critique of zooplankton sampling methods is presented with special emphasis on their potential application to ecological studies of marine invertebrate larvae.
EARLY LIFE HISTORIES, OCEAN CURRENTS, AND THE POPULATION GENETICS OF CARIBBEAN REEF FISHES
Tropical reef fishes, along with many benthic invertebrates, have a life cycle that includes a sedentary, bottom‐dwelling reproductive phase and a planktonic stage that occurs early in development.

The Distribution of Marine Invertebrate Larvae Near Vertical Surfaces in the Rocky Subtidal Zone
The realized dispersion patterns of marine invertebrate larvae were examined in the field for a range of larval types that differ in their potential for dispersal. Plankton samples were collected

The Fauna of the Sea-Bottom
SCTUDIES of the fauna of the sea-bottom are of essential zoological significance, and many scientific questions as well as important fishery interests depend upon them. The subject, however, is so
The rearing of oyster larvae on an algal diet
TLDR
Much greater significance attaches to the most recent contribut~on to the oyster-breeding problem-that of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries-an investigation in which the importance of a full knowledge of the biological and physical factors, and their incidence at all stages of the Oyster's life is adequately realized, and applied so far as practical limitations permit.

TLDR
The observations to be recorded in this Paper were commenced in March, 1905, in an attempt to find a general method for rearing marine larval forms from artificially fertilized eggs under laboratory conditions.

TLDR
The breeding season of the lugworms of the Whitstable area is a sharply defined one, extending for 14 days between the new moon and full moon spring tides in the second half of October, where from August onwards to the end of October 98% of the adult worms are ripe.

TLDR
Experiments showed that larvae of Notomastus latericeus Sars generally metamorphose several days before those kept in clean glass vessels or with clean shell gravel, and after metamorphosis the growth and health of the young worms is generally much better in mud or sand than in gravel orclean glass vessels.
