Life cycles for broadcast-spawning marine invertebrates are characterized by a pelagic (larval) and benthic (juvenile and adult) stage, which are differentiated by the process of settlement and metamorphosis. While settlement and recruitment are concepts that primarily deal with the ecological aspects of this transition, they are often accompanied by a drastic morphological and developmental transition. Larval transport, the means of reaching suitable settlement sites, is difficult to study, but insights from genetics, behavior, sensory ecology, and oceanography have provided important insights....
