    The principle of competitive exclusion, also known as Gause’s principle, tells us that it is impossible for any two organisms to occupy the same niche without one of them going extinct (Hardin 1960; Gause 1934). This principle is easy to see in frugivores, grainivores, and carnivores that use discrete food packets, such as an insect or seed (Hanley 1982). MacArthur (1958) clearly demonstrated that each species is uniquely adapted to their niche and their competitive advantage prevents niche overlap, with his classic warbler study. However, it is much harder to determine how herbivores partition food resources, since they consume highly variable diets (Hanley 1982). Furthermore, ecosystems are in a state of constant flux, and the addition of non-native animals has the potential to…

    Transistors control a large current flowing through a semiconductor with the use of a small current. The creation of transistors was made possible by the Pauli exclusion principle, which states that each electron has a unique set of quantum numbers, and only two electrons can occupy the same orbital. Knowledge of the exclusion principle allowed developers like Shockley, Van Vleck, and Bardeen to create the transistor with semiconductors, which also rely heavily on quantum mechanics (they only…

    I approached the doors of the Great Hall and my heart was practically beating out of my chest. All I could hear was “left foot, right foot, left foot, right foot.” Everyone seemed to know what they were doing, except me. I decided to sit and watch, but deep down inside I was trying to build up the courage to join in and accept the fact that I have two left feet. I felt like all eyes were on me because I was the only person in the entire room sitting, but I did not care. Nothing was more…
