    Interspecific competition is the competition between two different species. Interspecific competition results from many species with similar niches and limited resources available. A niche is defined as an area that a species inhabits, the role or function of the species in the ecosystem and the species relationship with all is biotic and abiotic factors affecting it (Biology online dictionary, 2015).The limiting resources could be resources such as mates’ nutrients and space (M. Beals, L. Gross, S. Harrell, 1999). Competition exists between species with similar niches and limited resources because they are dependent on the same substances and environment to insure their survival and thus they compete. Competition will result in the better…

    Competition, predation and species responses to environmental change In the study that was run they were trying to examine the effects of interspecific competition which is when individuals of different species are competing for the same resources such as food and shelter in an ecosystem and the preying of one species on another species due to species responses to temperature change (Jiang and Kulczycki, 2004). Other experiments have been run on temperature change but they do not have a good…

    The acquisition of resources in animals is an important influence on the structure and actions of a species since individuals want to pass their genes onward to survive. However, interspecific competition affects the availability of these resources and therefore influences the methods by which a species obtains them. Surf Scoter ducks demonstrate a synchronous dive and surfacing pattern, as investigated by LE Schenkeveld and RC Ydenberg, as a tactic to overpower kleptoparasites – animals who rob…

    In ecology, interspecific competition occurs between two different species that compete for the same resources (Connell, 1983). These resources include sunlight, water, nutrients, space and mates (Connell, 1983). Interspecific competition can lead to reduced fitness of one or both of the species, as resources of the ecosystem become limited (Connell, 1983). In this study, the effects of interspecific competition were compared between Cynodon dactylon (Bermuda grass) and Calyptocarpus vialis…

    Experiment: Interspecific Competition (Buckwheat v. Oats) I. Introduction Understanding relationships between organisms is crucial to the study of ecology. Within the study of organism relationships, there exist many types of ecological competitions. The focus of our lab experiment will be on interspecific competition. Interspecific competition is best defined as the competition between individuals of different species (Brooker et al 2014). The concept of interspecific competition is…

    the death rate roughly equals to the birth rate through the inflection point, a point that the growth rate is constant. At equilibrium, the steady state occurs that the birth rate and the death rate are equal. The growth of the Paramecium caudatum and Paramecium aurelia in separate media should fit the logistic population growth. The interspecific interactions, includes competition, predation, herbivory, symbiosis and facilitation, are interactions with individuals of other species in the…

    Depending on a landowner’s objective, any tree can be a crop tree and any tree can be competition for that crop tree. Depending on which is the crop tree and characteristics of said tree, certain measures can be taken to ensure the crop tree is growing at its full potential. These measures always take into account the tree or trees that are competing with it. Control of competition is essential in having successful crop trees. Black cherry (Prunus serotina) is a tree that is used not only as…

    Competition, in biology, is the relationship between members of the same or different species in which individuals are adversely affected by those having the same living requirements, such as food or space. It doesn’t necessarily have to be between members, it can be between a human and the human mind. In specific habitats, organisms compete for resources, such as water, nutrients, space, and mates. Each organism has a niche amidst a given region that includes everything the organism needs to…

An oligopoly is a market with a small number of large firms that control the market, these firms holding a significant market share. The Australian supermarket industry is an oligopoly with Coles and Woolworths dominating the market share; this report investigates the pricing structures of an oligopoly and explores the factors involved. The Theory of Pricing in an Oligopoly Pricing in an Oligopoly is difficult, firms can…
