The question of how far the larvae of marine organisms disperse is fundamental to an understanding of their population dynamics, the management of exploited species and the conservation of marine biodiversity. It is generally assumed that larvae disperse away from their natal population so that local populations operate as ‘open’ systems, driven by recruitment of larvae from other sub-populations. However, this assumption has never been critically tested. Here we show for the first time that… CONTINUE READING
