Abstract: For sessile marine invertebrates the pelagic larval stage is the only means for dispersal, and thus govern population connectivity and maintenance of genetic diversity. It is also a kind of life insurance, i.e. it reduces the risk of extinctions. If environmental conditions deteriorate in one location, the dispersal of sexually derived propagules ensures the survival of the species. While the dispersal potential in marine invertebrate larvae is increasingly well understood for shallow-water spec... more
