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
