    There are three different ways a population can be dispersed. A population can be clumped, uniformly dispersed, or randomly dispersed. A clumped population would be common in a population that travels in groups or herds, with concentrated individuals near each other. Uniformly dispersed populations usually arise in territorial individuals. Randomly dispersed populations are EXTREMELY rare in nature, because this suggests that there are absolutely no ecological interactions between individuals. Palm trees are one of the few examples of random dispersal.
