Engineering arable landscapes to balance the pros and cons of weeds

Description

Abstract: Using a metacommunity model of uncultivated plant populations in an arablelandscape the positive contribution of source-sink dynamics to species coexistence isdemonstrated. The source-sink mechanism, which relies on spatial variation in habitat quality,presents an opportunity to promote arable diversity by managing the spatial component ofcropping patterns.
