On 22 August 2014, Science published the Research Article “Chemically mediated behavior of recruiting corals and fishes: A tipping point that may limit reef recovery” by D. L. Dixson et al. (1). On 17 February, we published an Editorial Expression of Concern (2) after being made aware of data manipulation accusations pertaining to this paper. In August, the University of Delaware informed us that the data in Figures 1A, 2, 3, and 4 were questioned and that they no longer have confidence in the validity of the data. In agreement with the recommendation of the University of Delaware, Science is retracting the paper.
