Abstract It is well known that adult dispersal is common in soft bottom intertidal and shallow subtidal communities. We here report on the first study that attempts to quantify the effects of both immigration and emigration on patches of soft sediment communities. Some species show adaptive emigration from the seabed, although dispersal direction, distance, and colonization success are probably strongly dependent on hydrodynamics, morphological adaptations to dispersal, and the ability to… CONTINUE READING
