Example text

Whether produced asexually or sexually, however, spores and gametes of algae are almost always unicellular (but see [22]). Animals too can alternate between sexual and clonal production, but the asexual propagules produced by animals are almost always multicellular. g. [23–26]). For example, freshwater bryozoans produce desiccation-resistant asexual statoblasts during times of drying, which may be an important source for colonisation when conditions again become suitable [27]. g. some hydroid medusae [28] – which in most species disperses freely and in all cases produces freely spawned gametes which unite to form a larval stage that then settles and metamorphoses to a juvenile).

1 Introduction The adult stages of biofouling species are sessile or sedentary, so that adult dispersal is generally negligible or non-existent. Consequently larvae and juveniles are the key life-history stages for recruitment to and dispersal among populations. The concepts of supply and dispersal are two critical components of the ecology of benthic marine invertebrates including biofouling species. The idea of larval supply to a population is intuitively obvious, but a diverse terminology has been used to describe the movement of propagules among populations.

We deal firstly with the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that influence scales of propagule dispersal, including large and small scale oceanographic factors and the more recent recognition of the importance of larval behaviour. In most cases, directly estimating the scales of propagule dispersal is difficult or impossible and instead estimation generally relies on indirect methods such as genetic and other tags that can be used to identify the origins of propagules. Finally we discuss the practical implications of different dispersal scales, including their relevance to problems of biofouling.
