Dispersal pattern and dispersion of adult and nymph stink bugs (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) in wheat and corn.
Though slower fruit removal may at first appear disadvantageous because of the potential opportunity cost via reduced quantity of dispersal in a given period of time, it may in fact result in a higher quality dispersal pattern overall.
In the north-central section of the study area, a 10 km long Al concentration pattern, located approximately 2 km northeast of the ridge, does not deviate significantly from its southeasterly trend and forms the longest geochemical dispersal pattern (Fig.
In a worldwide dispersal pattern akin to that of PCBs and DDT, PBDEs have been measured in San Francisco Bay fish and harbor seals, Greenland fish and mussels, Great Lakes gulls, Lake Ontario trout, polar bears near the North Pole, ringed seals from the Canadian Arctic, and beluga whales near Baffin Island.
You select the rules and an initial dispersal pattern (or make your own), and let it rip.
Much of the pioneering work in the field of drift prospecting can be credited to Prest, who was perhaps the first to recognize the three-dimensional dispersal pattern of gold grains in till that form what is currently known as an ore dispersal 'plume.' In the old days, when prospectors found a glacially transported boulder with visible 'gold float,' they used the old adage "Go North." If they were lucky, they found gold-bearing quartz veins, either in a bedrock outcrop or in the hand-dug trenches they used at the time.

Another dispersal pattern shown by juveniles was roaming as pairs or alone in relatively large areas before settling.
Adding scallop shells onto the sand induced a dispersal pattern similar to the one observed on gravel.
Northwestward elongation of the westernmost rhyolite clast dispersal pattern results from the lack of data in the northwest corner of the study area.
