Modelling the ecological implications of complex dispersal networks – Mikael Boden

In patchy environments, the ecological dynamics of obligate dispersers are driven by their connectivity patterns. Opportunistic analyses have revealed strong, consistent and complex structure within these patterns, but we have yet to synthesise the results into a coherent framework, and the analytic methods we have are poorly ‐ suited to our problem’s ecological context. I will provide a brief overview of our current progress, and outline some outstanding problems.
