Looking south across the island of Mecherchar, Palau. Four of the archipelago’s >50 marine lakes are visible: Ongeim’l Tketau (Jellyfish Lake) is in the foreground, with the crocodile and L-shaped lakes complex centre-right. In this issue, Blanchette & colleagues develop a preliminary physical model to help understand the drivers of community assembly and population dynamics in these insular systems.
