The role of preadaptation, propagule pressure and competition in the colonization of new habitats

Adriana Alzate Vallejo, Renske Onstein, Rampal S. Etienne & Dries Bonte
To successfully colonize new habitats, organisms not only need to gain access to it, they also need to cope with the selective pressures imposed by the local biotic and abiotic conditions. The number of immigrants, the preadaptation to the local habitat and the presence of competitors are important factors determining the success of colonization. Here, using two experimental set-ups, we studied the effect of interspecific competition in combination with propagule pressure and preadaptation on the...
