Effects of spatial aggregation on competition, complementarity and resource use

Mokany, Karel; Ash, Julian; Roxburgh, Stephen H.


The spatial distributions of most species are aggregated to varying degrees. A limited number of studies have examined the effects of spatial aggregation on interspecific and intraspecific interactions, generally finding that spatial aggregation can enhance coexistence between species by reducing the capacity for interspecific competition. Less well studied are the effects of spatial aggregation on complementarity (i.e. differences in resource use strategies) and resource use. Our primary...[Show more]
