Dynamical mechanism for coexistence of dispersing species without trade-offs in spatially extended ecological systems.

Abstract

Most prior studies on the role of dispersal in the coexistence of competing species have emphasized the need for trade-offs between competitive and colonizing abilities for coexistence. Theoretical studies of the evolution of dispersal recently have revealed an alternative mechanism for the coexistence of species differing solely in dispersal rates in… (More)
