Interspecific aggression between ecologically similar species may influence geographic limits by mediating competitive exclusion at the range edge. [...] Key Method We first delineated replacement zones and described temperature regimes on three mountains in Costa Rica and Panama where Chiriquí singing mice (S. xerampelinus) abruptly replace Alston's singing mice (S. teguina).Expand
Weak asymmetric interspecific aggression and divergent habitat preferences at an elevational contact zone between tropical songbirds
Closely related tropical bird species often occupy mutually exclusive elevational ranges, but the mechanisms generating and maintaining this pattern remain poorly understood. One hypothesis is thatExpand
Asymmetric interspecific aggression in New Guinean songbirds that replace one another along an elevational gradient
TLDR
The hypothesis that interspecific aggression is one factor influencing elevational limits in species-pairs of New Guinean passerine elevational replacements is supported. Expand
Reciprocal territorial responses of parapatric African sunbirds: species-level asymmetry and intraspecific geographic variation
TLDR
The results indicate that N. fuelleborni populations can retain broad response functions absent contact with N. moreaui, such that competitor recognition is not necessary to explain strong territorial responses to N.Moreaui. Expand
Parapatric pied and red-handed tamarin responses to congeneric and conspecific calls
TLDR
It was found that the red-handed tamarin was more likely to emit more territorial calls when listening to pied tamarins than to its own species in sympatric areas, but found no differences in vocal responses from either species in relation to agonistic calls or duration of display in sympathetic areas. Expand
Agonistic behavioural asymmetry in two species of montane lizard that exhibit elevational replacement
Context In montane systems, closely related species tend to segregate spatially along elevational gradients. The role of biotic interactions, relative to species physiological requirements, inExpand
Multiple routes to interspecific territoriality in sister species of North American perching birds
TLDR
The results support the idea that some cases of interspecific territoriality arise from misdirected intraspecific aggression while others are evolved responses to resource competition and that inter specific territoriality and hybridization together can have striking impacts on species ranges. Expand
Agonistic character displacement in social cognition of advertisement signals
TLDR
The results refute the traditional neuroethological concept of a matched filter and instead suggest expansion of sensory sensitivity to mediate competitor recognition in sympatry. Expand
Multiple routes to interspecific territoriality in sister species of North American perching birds
TLDR
The results suggest that interspecific territoriality has multiple origins and impacts coexistence at multiple spatial scales and support the idea that some cases of inter specific territoriality arise from misdirected intraspecific aggression while others are evolved responses to resource competition. Expand
Interspecific social dominance networks reveal mechanisms promoting coexistence in sympatric charrs in Hokkaido, Japan.
TLDR
A simple theoretical framework is developed that allows measuring the relative strength of intraspecific versus interspecific competition in dominance hierarchies and is used to evaluate mechanisms promoting coexistence between congeneric charrs that compete for foraging positions, which strongly influence density-dependent growth and survival. Expand
Differences in aggressive responses do not contribute to shifts in a sapsucker hybrid zone
TLDR
It is suggested that species asymmetries in territorial aggressive responses do not cause hybrid zone movement in this system, which highlights the importance of comprehensive studies of hybrid zones in assessing the mechanisms that may be important in maintaining species boundaries between hybridizing taxa.

Squeezed at the top: Interspecific aggression may constrain elevational ranges in tropical birds.
TLDR
Experimental evidence is provided consistent with the hypothesis that interspecific competitive interactions restrict ranges of Neotropical birds and underscores the need to consider biotic processes, such as competition, when predicting how species' ranges will shift with climate change. Expand
Interspecific aggression and behavioural dominance among four sympatric species of shrews
TLDR
Level of interspecific aggression should reflect intensity of interference competition, and large dominant and small subordinate species should develop aggressive and passive agonistic behaviours, respectively, to achieve stable coex- istence in a four-species community of shrews. Expand
Interspecific aggression and habitat selection by Amazonian birds
TLDR
It is suggested that spatial segregation of congeneric bird species on habitat gradients, is commonly underpinned by interspecific territoriality mediated through directed, asymmetrical interspecific aggression. Expand
GEOGRAPHIC VARIATION IN THE SONGS OF NEOTROPICAL SINGING MICE: TESTING THE RELATIVE IMPORTANCE OF DRIFT AND LOCAL ADAPTATION
TLDR
It is proposed that, although much intraspecific acoustic variation is effectively neutral, selection has been important in shaping species differences in song, indicating accelerated evolution of species‐specific song. Expand
Interspecific territorialism in reed warblers: a local effect revealed by playback experiments
TLDR
Results suggest that interspecific territorialism in Acrocephalus warblers is adaptive and can largely be explained by competition between closely related species with similar ecology. Expand
Response of American redstarts (suborder Passeri) and least flycatchers (suborder Tyranni) to heterospecific playback: the role of song in aggressive interactions and interference competition
TLDR
Song is an important component in aggressive interactions between these two species, and reflects the dominant role of the flycatcher in such interactions, illustrating the capacity for interspecific interference competition to influence behavior and heterospecific song recognition in two distant avian taxa.

Altitudinal Zonation of Chipmunks (Eutamias): Interspecific Aggression
TLDR
The aggressive dominance of alpinus and amoenus explain the limited realized niches of speciosus and minimus and Hypotheses regarding the evolution of the patterns of aggressive behavior observed in these species are suggested. Expand
Macroecological signals of species interactions in the Danish avifauna
TLDR
Evidence that species interactions may be a significant factor in mediating the regional assembly of the Danish avifauna is presented and species interactions should be incorporated into species distribution modeling algorithms designed to predict species occupancy patterns based on environmental variables.

Limits to elevational distributions in two species of emberizine finches: disentangling the role of interspecific competition, autoecology, and geographic variation in the environment
TLDR
Focusing on Buarremon brush-finches, a group in which distributions represent one of the best examples of the potential role of competition limiting elevational ranges, it is shown that when distributions are compared along axes of climatic variation, some patterns of elevational range variation do appear to be consistent with predictions of the hypothesis that release from competition underlies expanded Elevational ranges in allopatry.
