Abstract: This dissertation examines two issues related to the
ecological and evolutionary consequences of sexual and
asexual reproduction in colonial marine invertebrates.
The first two chapters explore the extent to which the
planktonic larval phase limits the distribution and
abundance of a colonial ascidian, Oiplosoma similis. The
third chapter examines some of the fitness consequences
of alterations in the pattern of asexual reproduction by
colony fragmention in similis. All research was
carried out on the fringing coral reef surrounding
Coconut Island which is located in Kaneohe Bay, Oahu,
