Human effects on plant colonization capacity have not been studied mechanistically because a crucial component of colonization capacity, long-distance seed dispersal, could not be quantified. Now, development of mechanistic models has progressed sufficiently to estimate long-distance seed dispersal by wind. We used a recently developed mechanistic dispersal model to quantify seed dispersal by wind in grasslands for three important human effects on natural systems: habitat fragmentation… Expand
