Understanding the evolutionary ecology of dispersal

Alternative title:
An experimental approach using the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Abstract:

Understanding dispersal is a central aim of evolutionary ecology. Theoretical analyses of dispersal have been crucial in identifying key variables which contribute to its evolution and maintenance, but the supporting empirical data remains elusive. Microbes offer a powerful model system on which ecological and evolutionary theory can be experimentally tested with controlled and replicated experiments, and with the convenient malleability of selective pressures and bacterial genomics. Pseudomo...
