Spatially correlated extinctions select for less emigration but larger dispersal distances in the spider mite Tetranychus urticae.


Dispersal is a central process to almost all species on earth, as it connects spatially structured populations and thereby increases population persistence. Dispersal is subject to (rapid) evolution and local patch extinctions are an important selective force in this context. In contrast to the randomly distributed local extinctions considered in most… (More)
