About this book

Based on the 2001 BES symposium and links ecological disciplines between different areas of theory and with empirical and modelling approaches to dispersal.

Media reviews

"This is a fascinating insight into a new and somewhat specialised area of study. The advanced research means that it is primarily a text for undergraduate and researcher but there is also a great deal of material that can be used by teachers. The basic overviews, studies of butterflies and biogeography all contribute to filling some of the gaps in knowledge. This is an area to watch with interest – this text has shown the value of dispersal study and now we need to wait to see how it develops."
TEG News, October 2002

"Thorough and thought-provoking, this will be the definitive guide to the study of species movements for the coming decade."
– Ian Powell, Biologist 50(3), 2003
