The authors use detailed data on individual dispersal events to test hypotheses about the factors influencing non-randomness of dispersal in fragmented landscapes. They show that the avoidance of inbreeding has previously unappreciated effects on the ways in which animals move across natural landscapes, and in particular a strong effect on where individuals go after leaving home.
