1. Does larval transport and recruitment vary markedly across an upwelling cell? 2. Do interspecific differences in larval behavior affect transport and recruitment? 3. How far from natal populations do larvae with different dispersal “strategies” travel at and away from a major upwelling center? 4. How should spatial variation in larval transport affect the placement, size, spacing and evaluation of MPAs across upwelling cells?
