abstract: There is an increasing recognition that individual-level
spatial and temporal heterogeneity may play an important role in
metapopulation dynamics and persistence. In particular, the patterns
of contact within and between aggregates (e.g., demes) at different
spatial and temporal scales may reveal important mechanisms gov-
erning metapopulation dynamics. Using 7 years of data on the in-
teraction between the anther smut fungus (Microbotryum violaceum)
and fire pink (Silene virginica), we show how the application of
spatially explicit and implicit network models can be used to make
