· The first comprehensive treatment of plant dispersal set within a population framework
· Examines both the processes and consequence of dispersal
· Spans the entire range of research, from natural history and collection of empirical data to modeling and evolutionary theory
· Provides a clear and simple explanation of mathematical concepts
