Species coexistence of marine nematodes: Environmental conditions, resource utilisation and microhabitat partitioning as possible drivers of niche differentiation

Άννα-Μαρία X. Βαφειάδου
According to the classical ecological theory of coexistence, two functionally similar species cannot coexist due to their strong competition; one will outcompete the other. Niche differentiation is the principal driver of species coexistence, as competing species with similar ecological functions can diversify their ecological niche so that the smaller their niche overlap is, the more stabilising is their niche partitioning. Apart from the environmental factors that can define a species’ niche, species interactions also play...
