Introduction - Frontiers in Marine Movement Ecology:
mechanisms and consequences of migration and dispersal
in marine habitats
Biology Letters
Dispersal and migration are important ecological processes that influence
rates of exchange, colonization, extinction and speciation for a wide array
of taxa in terrestrial and aquatic systems. The role of movement patterns
in the marine environment is particularly critical because a majority of
marine species have a mobile phase at some stage of their life
history. This special feature showcases a collection of papers that
illustrate the current frontiers of marine movement ecology and point the
way for future research in this critical area.
