AbstractEver since Darwin (1859), the dispersal of species from continents to oceanic islands, and between such islands, has been the subject of considerable speculation. These islands are those arising from the seafloor as a result of underwater geologic activity, typically volcanic or coralline, that have never been connected to continental land masses. In his seminal book Dispersal of Plants Throughout the World, Ridley (1930) collated considerable empirical evidence of long-distance dispersal (LDD) and proposed mechanisms responsible for the colonization of remote archipelagos. Later, van der Pijl (1982) summarized traits to define diaspore syndromes related to sea (hydrochory), wind (anemochory) and animal (zoochory) LDD. The latter includes endozoochory (dissemination of seeds in the disperser’s gut) and epizoochory (seeds externally attached to the disperser’s body).
