We studied the propagation of traveling fronts into an unstable state of the reaction-transport systems involving integral transport. By using a hyperbolic scaling procedure and singular perturbation techniques, we determined a Hamiltonian structure of reaction-transport equations. This structure allowed us to derive asymptotic formulas for the propagation rate of a reaction front. We showed that the macroscopic dynamics of the front are “nonuniversal” and depend on the choice of the underlying random walk model for the microscopic transport process.
