Abstract :

The study examines if natural selection leads to more long-distance dispersal in the spider mite "Tetranychus urticae". Results show that the spatial correlation of local extinctions changes the entire distribution of dispersal distances (dispersal kernel) and selects for overall less emigration but more long-distance dispersal.
