Feature Article: Disturbance-Facilitated Coexistence of Sessile Organisms in Space-Limited Environments: A Review of Works in Ecological Disturbance Theory

By Kenneth Wingerter on May 11, 2011 at 08:00 AM

It is now widely accepted among theoretical ecologists that periodic, severe, localized environmental disruption can increase biological diversity. However, many of the processes by which this takes place are not yet fully understood. Ongoing research in this area will continue to be of particular benefit to government fisheries resource managers as well as producers of sessile marine fauna.

Why the time a species spends as planktonic larvae doesn't factor into geographic extent

By on

Reef fishes start their lives as free-floating (pelagic) eggs and larvae, drifting and swimming the open ocean before maturing into adults and settling on their own little patch of reef. Some species spend more time in this stage than others, and scientists have long theorized the more time a species spends in egg/larvae stage, the more likely they are to reach greater distances. However, past studies have failed to link the duration of pelagic stage with geographic coverage. A new research has discovered why.
