Many species rely on resources that are discrete patches distributed across the landscape. Models of the coexistence of such taxa often require intraspecific aggregation of individuals on some patches, brought about by choices made during dispersal and patch location. Few studies have employed spatially explicit measures of dispersion to detect whether and how any aggregation of individuals is influenced by the dispersion of resource patches in natural landscapes.
