Note(s): It is clear from a large body of evidence that many larvae control their horizontal distribution and dispersal by navigating vertically in the water column on both ontogenetic and die! schedules. In this review, I summarize the ways that larvae respond behaviorally to the biotic and abiotic attributes of their environment while swimming. This large body of work has been reviewed so many times (Sulkin, 1984; Forward, 1976; Young and Chia, 1987), that a comprehensive review is unnecessary. I will use examples from the recent literature to illustrate the range of known larval behaviors, while attempting to place the observations in a realistic ecological and oceanographic context
