  • We study the consequences of asymmetric dispersal rates (e.g., due to wind or current) for adaptive evolution in a system of two habitat patches. Asymmetric dispersal rates can lead to overcrowding of the “downstream” habitat, resulting in a source‐sink population structure in the absence of intrinsic quality differences between habitats or can even cause an intrinsically better habitat to function as a sink. Source‐sink population structure due to asymmetric dispersal rates has similar… CONTINUE READING
