The work carried out so far highlights Poole Harbour as being an anomaly in the apparent steady progressive development of Pacific oyster populations around the coast, in that there is an obvious source of larvae but little successful settlement. The mechanisms which are ‘dampening down’ expected settlement appear to include at least one physical factor but it is likely that this is moderated by biological factors such as competition for settlement space and predation. Further work is required to establish which biological factors may be modifying recruitment success and whether recruitment is moderated during the larval stage or post metamorphosis. if the dominant controlling factor(s) act before oyster settlement it is most likely water temperature that controls the naturalised population, however top-down control by predators could be significant if oysters are surviving metamorphosis.

Data Records

The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 11 records. 2 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
