Abstract. We examined the relative roles of dominance in agonistic interactions and energetic constraints related to body size in determining local abundances of coyotes (Canis latrans, 8–20 kg), gray foxes (Urocyon cinereoargenteus, 3–5 kg) and bobcats (Felis rufus, 5–15 kg) at three study sites (hereafter referred to as NP, CP, and SP) in the Santa Monica Mountains of California. We hypothesized that the largest and behaviorally dominant species, the coyote, would exploit a wider range of… Expand
Intraguild Predation and Interspecific Killing as Structuring Forces of Carnivoran Communities in South America
TLDR
The results indicate jaguars, pumas, and ocelots as the species most likely to have significant impact on the guild and IGP and IK are not random and reflect widespread interactions that influence carnivoran community structure in South America. Expand
Apex Predators and the Facilitation of Resource Partitioning Among Mesopredators
TLDR
Findings indicate that carrion provisions could facilitate resource partitioning in mesocarnivore communities by alleviating exploitation competition for small mammals. Expand
Spatio-temporal partitioning facilitates mesocarnivore sympatry in the Stara Planina Mountains, Bulgaria.
TLDR
Investigation of intra-guild interactions and spatio-temporal partitioning among five mesocarnivores in the Stara Planina Mountains, Bulgaria found spatial and temporal niche partitioning appeared to reduce encounter probabilities and competition and may act to facilitate sympatric coexistence among this regional mesoc Carnivore guild. Expand
Interspecific competition and predation in American carnivore families
TLDR
Quantitative analyses suggest that several facets of carnivore niche occupation and morphology have evolved in response to intraguild pressures. Expand
Niche Partitioning amongMesocarnivores in a BrazilianWetland
We investigated the home range size, habitat selection, as well as the spatial and activity overlap, of four mid-sized carnivore species in the Central Pantanal, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. FromExpand
Niche Partitioning among Mesocarnivores in a Brazilian Wetland
TLDR
It is suggested that temporal segregation of carnivores was more important than spatial segregation, notably between the generalist coati, crab-eating fox and Crab-eating raccoon, and the more specialized ocelot. Expand
Superpredation patterns in four large European raptors
TLDR
The food stress hypothesis is supported as the main driving force behind increases in superpredation and IGP in raptors, with the decrease in breeding performance as a side effect. Expand
Food webs and intraguild predation: community interactions of a native mesocarnivore.
TLDR
The results support the prediction that, under intraguild predation in terrestrial systems, top predator distribution matches resource availability (resource match), while intermediate predator distribution inversely matches predation risk (safety match). Expand
Niche overlap and resource partitioning between two sympatric fox species in southern Brazil
Mechanisms that favour the co-occurrence of morphologically and ecologically similar species in South America are potentially relevant, because two or more species often occur in sympatry. In theExpand
Diets of sympatric native and introduced carnivores in the Barrington Tops, eastern Australia.
TLDR
The results suggest wild dogs competitively dominate invasive foxes, which in turn are likely to compete with the endangered quoll. Expand

Niche relations among three sympatric Mediterranean carnivores
TLDR
It is proposed that foxes avoided lynxes by using, during activity, habitats not frequented by lynxes, and that a low predation risk associated with the distinctive foraging mode of badgers may facilitate its coexistence with other carnivores. Expand
COMMUNITY STRUCTURE OF SHORTGRASS-PRAIRIE RODENTS: COMPETITION OR RISK OF INTRAGUILD PREDATION?
Local assemblages of rodents in northern shortgrass prairie may reflect either predatory or competitive effects of northern grasshopper mice (Onychomys leucogaster) on other species such as deer miceExpand
Mesopredator release and avifaunal extinctions in a fragmented system
TLDR
It appears that the decline and disappearance of the coyote, in conjunction with the effects of habitat fragmentation, affect the distribution and abundance of smaller carnivores and the persistence of their avian prey. Expand
An experimental demonstration of exploitation competition in an ongoing invasion
TLDR
Clumped resources can increase interspecific exploitation competition, and this mechanism may contribute to spe- cies turnover when human environmental alterations redistribute resources. Expand
Bobcat–coyote niche relationships during a period of coyote population increase
TLDR
Resource partitioning between bobcats and coyotes was investigated in eastern Maine during 1979–1984, when colonizing populations of coyotes were rapidly expanding, to investigate activity patterns, spatial relationships, and habitat use. Expand
Diet overlap and relative abundance of sympatric dasyurid carnivores: a hypothesis of competition
TLDR
These results, high levels of interference experienced by spotted-tailed quolls, and the behavioural and numerical dominance of devils, the largest species in the carnivore guild, support Brown & Maurer's (1986) and Cotgreave's (1993) ideas that competitive dominance may be more important than energetic equivalence in determining relationships between body size and abundance in local assemblages of animals.

TLDR
The purpose is to document the ubiquity and importance of intraguild predation and to establish a theoretical framework for its analysis, which is the first synthesis of IGP into a general work. Expand
Intraguild predation of lynxes on foxes : evidence of interference competition?
TLDR
The proportion of uneaten fox carcasses was highly significantly larger than the proportion of both other prey species, indicating that interference competition may play a role in the intraguild predation of lynxes on red foxes. Expand
A long-term study on the dynamics of guild structure among predatory vertebrates at a semi-arid Neotropical site
TLDR
Monitoring of diets and populations of predatory vertebrates in semi-desert scrub at Auco, Chile found that availability of the eight species of small mammals varied relatively little between predators' breeding and non-breeding seasons but declined by an order of magnitude through the first 3 yr of the study.

Predation Risk and Competition Affect Habitat Selection and Activity of Namib Desert Gerbils
TLDR
It is proposed that high susceptibility to predation results in a shared preference for the safest habitat and leads to competition for limited resources. Expand
