The papers on settlement and recruitment presented at the workshop are summarized. Together they represent the research approaches of behaviorists and embryologists. Three major categories of current research are examined: induction of metamorphosis, settlement, and recruitment. Probable fruitless and fruitful study areas are assessed. Topics deserving new emphasis are: evaluation of interactions of environmental stimuli; expansion of work on the chemistry of metamorphic inducers; preparation of predictive models of recruitment at five scales; and research with larvae in flumes where hydrostatic conditions can be controlled.
