restricted distributions in reef stomatopods. The latter indicates that most reef stomatopods risk extinction if faced with rapid global environmental changes.
Life history patterns of stomatopods are consistent with those found in other living and fossil groups for reproductive and life history traits, patterns of abundance, and frequency distributions of body size and geographic range. Body size is positively correlated with fecundity and colonizing ability in most marine invertebrates (Reaka, 1979, 1980; Strathmann and Strathmann, 1982; Jablonski and Lutz, 1983; Strathmann, 1985, 1990; Jablonski, 1986b, 1996; Reaka-Kudla, 1991; Roy et al., 2001, 2002; Jablonski
