The Trajectory of Dispersal Research in Conservation Biology. Systematic Review
For factors that varied with topic, time or their interaction: the importance of dispersal in the reviewed papers (A – C), and; the study type (D – G). Responses indicate the proportion of reviewed papers with, for example, dispersal as the aim/main focus (A). Error bars indicate 95% confidence limits. Categories for age by topic interactions are indicated with abbreviated topic names (clim = climate change, inva = invasive species, plan = land planning, pva = PVA, rest = restoration). Old refers to papers from the first time period (1990s), while “new” indicates papers from (2010-12).
