Patterns of Dispersion

Jordan, Tim and Tom


Three types of dispersion
Three types of Dispersion

  • Clumped

  • Uniform

  • Random

    Provide insight into social interactions in populations and environmental characteristics at a local level.


Clumped
Clumped

  • A clumped dispersion describes a group of like organisms clustered around certain thing(s), such as food and water.


Why clumped
WHY?- Clumped

  • May be associated with mating behavior

  • Increase effectiveness of predators (pack animals

  • Safety in numbers

  • Aptitude of environment (soil quality)


Uniform
Uniform

  • An even dispersion of organisms due to environmental factors.


Why uniform
Why?- Uniform

  • Antagonistic social interactions: territoriality

  • Competition for resources

  • Some plants secrete chemicals that inhibit the germination of nearby plants.


Random
Random

  • The random dispersion of organisms that it independent of other individual organisms of the same species


Why random
Why?-Random

  • Completely unpredictable dispersion of organisms

  • Due to absence of strong attractions or repulsions among individuals

  • i.e. Seeds blown in the wind (Dandelions/Maples)
