The recruitment of scleractinian corals that are produced by sexual reproduction is an important force in the maintenance and structuring of coral reef communities. In this study, I evaluated the abundance, distribution and taxonomic composition of juvenile scleractinian in reefs from the Rosario Islands archipelago, one of the most biodiverse coral reef areas in the Colombian Caribbean.
