Nest-site utilisation and niche overlap in two sympatric, cavity-nesting finches

Brazill-Boast, James; Pryke, Sarah; Griffith, Simon C.


Determining the relative access of a species to critical limiting resources requires knowledge of the spectrum of their resource utilisation (niche space) and that of potential competitors, and the frequency distribution of resources in the environment. We used this theoretical framework to assess the relative access to nesting sites and the potential for interspecific competition between two sympatric cavity-nesting finches. Gouldian (Erythrura gouldiae) and Long-tailed (Poephila acuticauda)...[Show more]
