Data from: Differential persistence favors habitat preferences that determine the distribution of a reef fish

John E. Majoris, Cassidy C. D'Aloia, Robin K. Francis & Peter M. Buston
A central focus of population ecology is understanding what factors explain the distribution and abundance of organisms within their range. This is a key issue in marine systems, where many organisms produce dispersive larvae that develop offshore before returning to settle on benthic habitat. We investigated the distribution of the neon goby, Elacatinus lori, on sponge habitat and evaluated whether variation in the persistence of recently settled individuals (i.e., settlers) among different sponge types can...
