While non-spatial models predict that like species cannot stably coexist, empirical studies suggest that similar species have similar distributions due to shared habitat requirements. A model is developed to discuss competition and coexistence in subdivided but locally stable habitats. The model predicts that in some cases it is possible for one species to… CONTINUE READING
