Description The endangered black abalone (Haliotis cracherodii) suffered devastating losses along the coasts of Southern California, primarily caused by the effects of withering syndrome. Subsequent recovery may be hindered by the Allee effect, which limits the reproductive output when population densities are below a critical threshold and broadcast spawners are too distant for their gametes to mix in sufficient concentrations to result in fertilized eggs. I conducted simulated spawning experiments in... Thesis (Master's)--University of Washington, 2013
