Abstract

Dispersal into optimal habitat resulted in high survival and reproduction. Frustrated dispersal resulted in low survival, but once these animals became established, they showed high reproductive activity. Females appeared to benefit most from living in a population when density was reduced by dispersal.-from Authors
