Patterns of Niche Partitioning and Alternative Reproductive Strategies in an East African Dung Beetle Assemblage

Abstract

Sympatric species of coprophagus dung beetles rely on essentially the same resource for provisioning broods, which raises the question of how local species diversity is maintained. Interspecific competition may be mitigated to some extent by large-scale spatial (e.g., habitat type) and temporal (e.g., seasonal) variation in activity. Niche partitioning also… (More)
