The equation of Vogel et al. (1982) is widely used in fertilization studies of free-spawning marine invertebrates to predict the percentage of viable eggs that will be fertilized at any specified levels of gamete concentration and contact time. Here, the random collision model that underlies the Vogel et al. equation is extended to distinguish between… CONTINUE READING
