Although plants and other sessile organisms often disperse in a prevailing direction, the ecological consequences of this are poorly understood. To explore patterns of plant diversity similar to those found in a California river system, I modeled perennial plant populations and communities occurring in a linear series of neighborhoods connected by dispersal, where dispersal occurs in a prevailing downstream direction. Simulations demonstrated that population size and species diversity… CONTINUE READING
