Abstract/Summary A metapopulation consists of interacting populations, each occupying distinct spatially separated patches of habitat. Modelling these populations has become increasingly important because anthropogenic impacts on spatially homogeneous populations have led to increased habitat fragmentation and accidental introduction of invasive species. We employ a two-parameter continuous-time Markovian model for patch occupancy, which has been used previously to study the spread of disease in closed populations. This model takes into account proximity of patches, rather than any detailed spatial structure. Our model will be particularly suited to studying species occupying marine environments that are subject to complex ocean currents, where the connectivity between habitat patches is dynamic, and most applicable to invertebrate and plant species that are dispersed passively by these currents.
