Description

This tabular dataset is the result of computer simulations conducted by NOAA scientists and their partners to estimate the transport of marine larvae between islands in and around the Mariana Archipelago. The table consists of the number of virtual larvae transported from each source to each destination based on several scenarios. Separate simulations were conducted for 4 larval durations and 2 settlement zones (labelled as ?multispecies?), and also customized for 6 priority species. Species included yellowfin goatfish (Mulloidichthys flavolineatus), post-larval scribbled rabbitfish (Siganus spinus), humphead wrasse (Cheilinus undulatus), bluespine unicornfish (Naso unicornis), and crown-of-thorns seastar (Acanthaster planci).
