Most models of dispersal assume that plants are point sources. In reality, the scale in height over which seed sources are distributed is often of the same order as the scale in distance over which most individual seeds are dispersed. But is this sufficient to affect the fundamental shapes of dispersal frequency distributions? Most published conclusions… CONTINUE READING
