Dispersal can sharpen parapatric boundaries on a spatially varying environment

Abstract:

Parapatry describes a geographic pattern in which the ranges of two species have separate but contiguous distributions without any physical barriers between them. We present results from a study of ecological mechanisms to explain parapatry in closely related species. These include competition, spatially varying performances, and dispersal that depends on the densities of both species. We use a model consisting of two coupled nonlinear reaction-diffusion equations with density-dependent diffu...
