Abstract

From habitat degradation and climate change to spatial spread of invasive species, dispersal plays a central role in determining how organisms cope with environment. How should organisms disperse "optimally" in heterogeneous environments? I will discuss some recent development on the evolution of dispersal, focusing on evolutionarily stable dispersal strategies in PDE models.
