The role of interspecific competition as a key factor in the ecology of natural communities where species exploit limited resources is well established, and the study of competition dynamics in snake communities has received much attention in recent years. Twenty years ago, an acclaimed review (Toft 1985) suggested that snakes were atypical among vertebrates because sympatric species usually partition the food niche. Here, I review the articles published in the last two decades with the aim of… Expand
