Data from: The biogeography of marine invertebrate life histories

Dustin J. Marshall, Patrick J. Krug, Elena K. Kupriyanova, Maria Byrne & Richard B. Emlet
Biologists have long sought to identify and explain patterns in the diverse array of marine life histories. The most famous speculation about such patterns is Gunnar Thorson’s suggestion that species producing planktonic larvae are rarer at higher latitudes (Thorson’s rule). Although some elements of Thorson’s rule have proven incorrect, other elements remain untested. With a wealth of new life-history data, statistical approaches, and remote-sensing technology, new insights into marine reproduction can be generated. We gathered...
