Migration among patches in a metapopulation may be limited by migrants or by patch quality. In an intensively studied Daphnia metapopulation, the authors reveal that patch quality is a strongly limiting factor. Actual migration rates are 3–5 times higher than previously thought, making the entire metapopulation much more dynamic than previous studies assumed.
