Abstract

Jodie Schlaefer studied box jellyfish. She found that self-contained stocks were separated by only tens of kilometers, challenging the paradigm that jellyfish populations are well mixed over large distances. The occurrence of box jellyfish is unpredictable because their abundance is influenced by conditions at the small spatial scale of stocks.
