Abstract

Dispersal success is integral to survival of species in metacommunities. For species that disperse passively like zooplankton, reliance on dispersal vectors is paramount for colonization of water bodies. Zooplankton species engage in dispersal in time (resting eggs) and space (overland). For dispersal in time, resting eggs are deposited in the sediment during adverse conditions and recolonize aquatic systems when beneficial conditions resume
