Modeling the Potential Spread of the Recently Identified Non-Native Panther Grouper (Chromileptes altivelis) in the Atlantic Using a Cellular Automaton Approach

Figure 3

Settlement and focus area maps.

Settlement rates of adult breeding populations for panther grouper on a ‘hot’ (red) to ‘cold’ (blue) scale using Jenks' natural breaks as class divisions (a method that reduces inter-class variance and maximizes variance between distinct classes) for CSFK (A), CSBC (B) and composite study (C) simulations for a duration of 78 months. Focus areas for early detection are indicated for the Jupiter Florida/Vero Beach (red), Cape Hatteras Tropical Limit/Myrtle Beach (orange), and Florida Keys/Ten Thousand Islands (green) locations.
