Chapter 4 (Page no: 85)

The ecology of seed dispersal.

This chapter is divided into two sections, the first dealing with the evolution of dispersal mechanisms and the second with the consequences of dispersal at population and community levels. Dispersal can occur in both space and time, but only the former will be discussed, except where some relationship between the two axes is known.
