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.
The Bulletin of Marine Science is dedicated to the dissemination of high quality research from the world's oceans. All aspects of marine science are treated by the Bulletin of Marine Science, including papers in marine biology, biological oceanography, fisheries, marine affairs, applied marine physics, marine geology and geophysics, marine and atmospheric chemistry, and meteorology and physical oceanography.
