Stable coexistence relies on negative frequency-dependence, in which rarer species invading a patch benefit from a lack of conspecific competition experienced by residents. In nature, however, rarity can have costs, resulting in positive frequency-dependence particularly when species are rare. Many processes can cause positive frequency-dependence… CONTINUE READING
