    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).
