Background: Theories of density-dependent habitat selection provide two solutions for co-existence of competing species. The niche compression hypothesis predicts that species reduce their respective niche breadths in response to inter-specific competition. Alternatively, if the species have similar resource preferences, the subordinate species may be forced to expand its niche to incorporate secondary resources. Aim: Determine whether grazing ungulate species partition the resource by… CONTINUE READING
