Metapopulation models have historically treated a landscape as a collection of habitat patches separated by a matrix of uniformly unsuitable habitat. This perspective is still apparent in many studies of marine metapopulations, in which recruitment variation is generally assumed to be primarily the result of variability in ocean currents and interactions with disperser behavior, with little consideration of spatial structure that can affect disperser viability. We use a simple model of… Expand
