A little bit about metapopulations. As we learn, links and information on how metapopulations effect biodiversity may be added to the thread. Comments and sources welcome.

Lab 11 Notes--Metapopulations

Quote:
Metapopulation: set of local populations occupying various habitat patches and connected to one another by the movement of individuals among them (Ricklefs and Miller 2000) . Subdivided populations with demographically significant exchange among them (Gutierrez and Harrison 1996). A 'population of populations'
