This advanced textbook is the first to explore the consequences of plant dispersal for population and community dynamics, spatial patterns, and evolution. It successfully integrates a rapidly expanding body of theoretical and empirical research. DT The first comprehensive treatment of plant dispersal set within a population framework DT Examines both the processes and consequence of dispersal DT Spans the entire range of research, from natural history and collection of empirical data to modeling and evolutionary theory DT Provides a clear and simple explanation of mathematical concepts Dispersal in Plants is aimed principally at graduates interested in plant ecology, although given the strong current interests in invasive species and global change it will also be of interest and use to a broad audience of plant scientists and ecologists seeking an authoritative overview of this rapidly expanding field.
