Abstract

An important question in the study of the evolution of dispersal is what kind of dispersal strategies are evolutionary stable. This work is motivated by recent work of Cosner et al. [9], in which they introduced a class of ideal free dispersal kernels and found conditions suggesting that they determine evolutionarily stable dispersal strategies. The goals of this paper are to introduce a more general class of ideal free dispersal kernels and further to show that such ideal free dispersal strategies are indeed evolutionary stable. Our work also extends some recent work on the evolutionary stability of ideal free dispersal for reaction-diffusion equations and patch models to nonlocal dispersal models.
