The distribution of organisms can be regulated by local environmental factors and regional processes such as dispersal. Here, we review recent work on the role of dispersal for generating population and community structure in freshwater zooplankton. We examine evidence for different mechanisms of dispersal among lakes, for the effects of dispersal limitations on populations and communities, and for the effects of spatial scale on dispersal rates. Zooplankton move via human or animal vectors… 
Zooplankton Diversity and Dispersal by Birds; Insights From Different Geographical Scales
Given the major ecological and evolutionary role of dispersal abilities for organisms, as well as the current interest in species’ potential for further migration and colonization as a result of
Biological Invasions Across Spatial Scales: Intercontinental, Regional, and Local Dispersal of Cladoceran Zooplankton
TLDR
Twelve years of collection records indicate a rapid invasion of reservoirs in the United States, by both regional spread and long-distance jumps to new regions, and the rarity of this species in ponds suggests limitation by local environments.
Spatial autocorrelation and dispersal limitation in freshwater organisms
TLDR
The data suggest that the critical threshold where greater body size increases dispersal limitation seems to come at the juncture between invertebrates and vertebrates rather than that between unicellular and multicellular organisms as has been previously suggested.
Recent advances in the study of long‐distance dispersal of aquatic invertebrates via birds
TLDR
There is a particular need for more quantitative studies of LDD by birds that will enable modellers to assess its role in maintaining invertebrate biodiversity among increasingly fragmented wetlands and in the face of climate change, as well as in the spread of invasive species.
The ecology and mechanisms of overflow‐mediated dispersal in a rock‐pool metacommunity
TLDR
It is demonstrated that passive dispersal of aquatic organisms among habitat patches is likely to occur at different rates for different taxa, which may have strong effects on spatial food-web dynamics.
The influence of dispersal on the realized trajectory of a pond metacommunity
TLDR
The results suggest that the role of dispersal may shift from a contributor to local, ecological dynamics to that of metacommunity-wide, colonization–extinction dynamics as communities assemble.
Regional zooplankton dispersal provides spatial insurance for ecosystem function
TLDR
Results suggest that regional diversity and habitat connectivity will be important in the future to maintain ecosystem function by introducing functionally redundant species to promote compensatory dynamics.
HIGH DISPERSAL CAPACITY OF CLADOCERAN ZOOPLANKTON IN NEWLY FOUNDED COMMUNITIES
TLDR
High colonization rates of newly created habitats by cladoceran zooplankton are revealed, reflecting a high dispersal capacity in this group of organisms.
Metacommunity organisation, spatial extent and dispersal in aquatic systems: patterns, processes and prospects
TLDR
A better understanding of the relative roles of species sorting, mass effects and dispersal limitation in affecting aquatic metacommunities requires the following: characterising dispersal rates more directly or adopting better proxies than have been used previously; considering the nature of aquatic networks; and combining correlative and experimental approaches.
Role of diapause in dispersal and invasion success by aquatic invertebrates
TLDR
Analysis of dispersal vectors of diapausing species revealed the increasing role of human-mediated vectors of species dispersal during last century (intentional and unintentional introductions, specifically associated with shipping) in comparison with natural vectors.

Scale-dependence and Mechanisms of Dispersal in Freshwater Zooplankton
Communities of organisms form as a result of both interspecific and abiotic interactions within local habitat patches and dispersal among patches in a region. Local processes are expected to play a
Blowing in the wind: a field test of overland dispersal and colonization by aquatic invertebrates
TLDR
The results suggest that zooplankton vary in their dispersal and colonization ability, and increased attention should be focused on the potential role of dispersal limitation and its importance for understanding the structure and function of aquatic communities.
LOCAL AND REGIONAL ZOOPLANKTON SPECIES RICHNESS: A SCALE‐INDEPENDENT TEST FOR SATURATION
Assemblages of coexisting species are formed by immigration from a re- gional pool of colonists and local interactions among species and with the physical envi- ronment. Theory suggests that the
Dispersal of aquatic organisms by waterbirds: a review of past research and priorities for future studies
TLDR
A literature review indicates that bird-mediated passive transport of propagules of aquatic invertebrates and plants is a frequent process in the field, at least at a local scale, and both endozoochory (internal transport) and ectozooChory (external transport) are important processes.
INTERACTIVE EFFECTS OF PREDATION AND DISPERSAL ON ZOOPLANKTON COMMUNITIES
TLDR
It is suggested that spatial heterogeneity in predator abundance promotes regional coexistence among zooplankton, and connection to a diverse regional species pool via dispersal may be important for determining the impact of local interactions such as predation on communities.
Dispersal in freshwater invertebrates
TLDR
Increased use of molecular markers has provided considerable insight into the frequency of dispersal in freshwater invertebrates, particularly for groups such as crustaceans and bryozoans that disperse passively through the transport of desiccation-resistant propagules.
Zooplankton community structure: the role of dispersal
TLDR
Evidence is presented from boater surveys and survivorship experiments which support the boater hypothesis for long-distance transport of zooplankron among lakes.
Effects of Competition, Predation, and Dispersal on Species Richness at Local and Regional Scales
TLDR
A model that draws on elements of metapopulation models of competitors and food chains by allowing competitors to coexist locally in the presence of predators but not in their absence predicts that predators promote regional coexistence by greatly expanding the range of conditions under which two competitors persist at equilibrium.
ZOOPLANKTON METACOMMUNITY STRUCTURE: REGIONAL VS. LOCAL PROCESSES IN HIGHLY INTERCONNECTED PONDS
