Long-distance seed dispersal in plant populations.
Long-distance seed dispersal influences many key aspects of the biology of plants, including spread of invasive species, metapopulation dynamics, and diversity and dynamics in plant communities.Expand
Methods for estimating long-distance dispersal
TLDR
We review the current state of methods employed in studies of dispersal, in order to facilitate the evaluation of their pertinence to specific aspects of LDD research. Expand
SEED DISPERSAL AND THE HOLOCENE MIGRATION OF WOODLAND HERBS
The distribution of many woodland herbs extends 1000-2000 km in a north- south direction, yet the majority of these species grow clonally, have little recruitment by seed, and possess no obviousExpand
ARE LONG‐DISTANCE DISPERSAL EVENTS IN PLANTS USUALLY CAUSED BY NONSTANDARD MEANS OF DISPERSAL?
It has been argued that nonstandard mechanisms of dispersal are often responsible for long-distance dispersal in plants. For example, plant seeds that appear to be adapted for wind dispersal mayExpand
Random Search by Herbivorous Insects: A Simulation Model
A stochastic simulation model that relates the success of various herbivore searching behaviors to the density and arrangement of food plants was developed. It was designed to be field- testable withExpand
CONSPECIFIC SPERM PRECEDENCE IS AN EFFECTIVE BARRIER TO HYBRIDIZATION BETWEEN CLOSELY RELATED SPECIES
Conspecific sperm precedence is widespread in animals, appears to evolve rapidly, and is thought to have the potential to prevent hybridization between closely related species. However, to date noExpand
A Spatially Explicit Test of Foraging Behavior in a Clonal Plant
Through plasticity in traits controlling clonal morphology, clonal plants possess the potential to selectively place ramets within a heterogeneous environment or "forage." Although many studiesExpand
Models of clonal growth in Solidago altissima
In this paper, field data on the old-field perennial Solidago altissima were used to test a variety of clonal growth models, including random-walk models, a new way to analyse the vegetative spreadExpand
Sampling spatial and temporal variation in soil nitrogen availability
Abstract There are few studies in natural ecosystems on how spatial maps of soil attributes change within a growing season. In part, this is due to methodological difficulties associated withExpand
CLONAL GROWTH AND RAMET PERFORMANCE IN THE WOODLAND HERB, ASARUM CANADENSE
1 We report the results from a 7-year study on the patterns of reproduction and vegetative spread of Asarum canadense, conducted in replicate plots located in the understorey of early and lateExpand
