A naturally heterogeneous landscape can effectively slow down the dispersal of aquatic microcrustaceans

Abstract

Several studies have suggested that aquatic microcrustaceans are relatively efficient dispersers in a variety of landscapes, whereas others have indicated dispersal limitation at large spatial scales or under specific circumstances. Based on a survey of a set of recently created ponds in an area of approximately 18 × 25 km, we found multiple indications of… (More)
