A hypothetical scenario wherein two insect species have oviposition resources on trees that are available for different periods of time (oviposition window). An insect species that can oviposit only during a small time duration (black circles) will have to locate its resources (trees) that are few and dispersed and therefore would require high dispersal capacities. However, an insect species that can oviposit over a larger time duration (dark-grey circles) will locate resources that are more abundant and less dispersed and would require lower dispersal capacities. Thus, the underlying resource dispersion is governed by the length of the oviposition window (length of time during which the tree serves as a resource) despite the same spatial distribution of the host trees
