The extent of dispersive movement behaviour in Australian vertebrate animals, possible causes, and some implications for conservation
We review categorizations of, and published evidence for, large-scale or dispersive movement in Australia's vertebrate fauna. For the purposes of this paper, dispersive movements are defined as any large scale movements, relative to an individual's territory or to the population breeding range.
