A growing consensus of biologists now favors the effectiveness of long-distance dispersal as a means of populating islands. The observational and experimental bases on which this opinion rests are strong, but additional work is needed. A clear under-standing of long-distance dispersal is essential to an understanding of evolutionary trends on oceanic islands, because immigrant patterns are different from relict patterns. Since oceanic islands are short-lived, the evolutionary history of waif… Expand
