Environmentally induced dispersal under heterogeneous logistic growth. (English) Zbl 1086.92054

Summary: We consider a single-species model which is composed of several habitats connected by linear migration rates and having logistic growth. A spatially varying, temporally constant environment is introduced by the non-homogeneity of its carrying capacity. Under this condition any type of purely diffusive behavior, characterized in our model by symmetric migration rates, produces an unbalanced population distribution, i.e., some locations receive more individuals than can be supported by the environmental carrying capacity, while others receive less.

Using an evolutionarily stable strategy (ESS) approach we show that an asymmetric migration mechanism, induced by the heterogeneous carrying capacity of the environment, will be selected. This strategy balances the inflow and outflow of individuals in each habitat (balanced dispersal), as well as ‘balancing’ the spatial distribution relative to variation in carrying capacity (the Ideal Free Distribution from habitat selection theory). We show that several quantities are maximized or minimized by the evolutionarily stable dispersal strategy.
