Edge effects influence competition dynamics: A case study of four sympatric arboreal marsupials

Youngentob, Kara Nicole; Yoon, Hwan-Jin; Coggan, Nicole; Lindenmayer, David B


Edge effects are widely researched phenomena in ecology. However, little is known about their influence on the competition dynamics of sympatric species. We present a new conceptual model to explain how edge effects and competition dynamics interact to influence community composition and illustrate it with a case study of four sympatric arboreal marsupial species in Australia. For the first time, we demonstrate that edge effects on interspecific competition influence community composition in...[Show more]
