ATLAS work package 1 & 4 presentation at ATLAS 3rd General Assembly

We present plans for, and initial results from, particle tracking modelling incorporating an idealised set of possible larval behaviours designed to cover the range of observed larval behaviour traits. Based around the ATLAS Case study regions these model experiments will ultimately form a systematic examination of how behaviours interact and how they affect larval dispersal. Extending this work to connectivity, we begin to look at potential effects of larval behaviour on connectivity on basin, regional and local scales and how this can be tested against results from genetic connectivity studies.
