Habitat loss, fragmentation and abandonment of traditional management practices have reduced connectivity by seed flow between Europe‘s calcareous grassland patches. Here we quantify the wind dispersal ability of calcareous grassland species using funnel traps. We show that dispersal into the adjacent landscape is species-specific and conclude that natural regeneration even over short distances should not rely on wind dispersal alone.
