Fig. 4. Species diversity of leptocephali at various stations for leptocephali from 1995–2003 (A). Diversity is plotted as Hill's N1 index. Symbols correspond to N1 values that range between about 2 and 8. Reprinted with modifications from Minagawa and Miller. Distribution and diversity patterns of leptocephali. In: Watanabe Y (ed). Living Marine Resources: How Do They Fluctuate in the Ocean? Tokai University Press, Tokyo. 2005; pp. 168–189. © 2005, Minagawa and Miller. Map of the Indo–Pacific region (B) showing the approximate distribution of coral reef areas in red, and bathymetry of the ocean in blue (light blue is shallow, and dark blue is deep), which was modified from imagery obtained from the ReefBase project (http://www.reefbase.org; NASA and NOAA; see Stumpf et al. 1999).
