Summary Now that so many ecosystems face rapid and major environmental change, the ability of species to respond to these changes by dispersing or moving between different patches of habitat can be crucial to ensuring their survival. Understanding dispersal has become key to understanding how populations may persist. Dispersal Ecology and Evolution provides a timely and wide-ranging overview of the fast expanding field of dispersal ecology, incorporating the very latest research. The causes, mechanisms, and consequences of dispersal at the individual, population, species, and community levels are considered. Perspectives and insights are offered from the fields of evolution, behavioural ecology, conservation biology, and genetics. Throughout the book theoretical approaches are combined with empirical data, and care has been taken to include examples from as wide a range of species as possible - both plant and animal.
Contents pt. 1. The multiple causes of the dispersal process -- pt. 2. The genetics of dispersal -- pt. 3. The association of dispersal with other life-history traits -- pt. 4. Distribution of dispersal distances -- pt. 5. Dispersal and population spatial dynamics : dispersal kernels -- pt. 6. Dispersal and climate change -- pt. 7. Dispersal and habitat fragmentation.
