Behavioral variability of hatchlings modifies dispersal potential in crown conch (Melongena corona): Why do larvae crawl away but sometimes swim?

Alexandra Hooks & Scott Burgess
The diversity and consequences of development in marine invertebrates has, for a long time, provided the opportunity to understand different evolutionary solutions to living in variable environments. However, discrete classifications of development can impede a full understanding of adaptation to variable environments when behavioral, morphological, or physiological flexibility and variation exists within traditionally defined modes of development. We report here novel behavioral variability in hatchlings of a marine gastropod, the Florida crown conch (Melongena corona),...
