Effects of competition on natal dispersal distances are examined by extending a recent model to consider any type of search path, mortality during dispersal, and a model that is intermediate between sequential and simultaneous dispersal. Sequential dispersal occurs where an individual disperses only after the preceeding disperser has settled. Simultaneous dispersal occurs where dispersers compete for vacancies at the same time. The search path used by a dispersing individual will influence the...[Show more]
