MMV - Mathematics of movement: an interdisciplinary approach to mutual challenges in animal ecology and cell biology In the context of transport in heterogeneous space, we study biased random walkers on random networks constituted by a random comb that has a backbone with quenched-disordered random-length branches. The consequences are drastic: the drift velocity of the walkers varies non-monotonically as a function of the bias, and it becomes zero beyond a critical bias ! We demonstrate these effects on the basis of exact results for the stationary state for any disorder realization of branch lengths sampled following an arbitrary distribution. We derive along the way a criterion for observing a non-monotonic drift velocity. Further, we show that stochastic resetting of walkers from branches to the backbone allows the system to have a drift velocity that is finite at any bias.
