  author={Ran Nathan and Gad Perry and James T. Cronin and Allan E. Strand and M. L. Cain},
Long-distance dispersal (LDD) includes events in which propagules arrive, but do not necessarily establish, at a site far removed from their origin. Although important in a variety of ecological contexts, the system-specific nature of LDD makes ‘‘far removed’’ difficult to quantify, partly, but not exclusively, because of inherent uncertainty typically involved with the highly stochastic LDD processes. We critically review the main methods employed in studies of dispersal, in order to… CONTINUE READING
