Tiny Fish Larvae Swept Into the 'Coral Triangle'

Caption: The connection between fish larvae that are swept in from the South China Sea and the Solomon Islands to the the 'Coral Triangle' located between Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines is a subject great interest, as they help to demonstrate the critical interconnectedness between these ecosystems. A paper on this subject titled “Connectivity and the development of population genetic structure in Indo-West Pacific coral reef communities” by Johnathan Kool, Claire Paris, Paul Barber and Robert Cowen is featured in the March 2011 issue of the journal Global Ecology and Biogeography.
