Discusses the relative importance of various life history stages to the question of resource variation regarding difficulties in sampling or studying on relevant scales. The report stresses identification and accounting for causal climate-driven ambient variations. Some testable hypotheses relating the larval stages are given as examples of useful research. We also describe research needed on predation and species interactions. Upwelling areas, coral reefs, tropical and shelf demersal fisheries, and the open fisheries each require different types and scales of study.-from Authors
