Competition, Colonization, and Temporal Niche Partitioning

Part of the Use R! book series (USE R)


In this chapter, we will explore and compare models in which transient dynamics at one spatial or temporal scale result in long-term coexistence at another. All these models assume that species coexist because there exists at least a brief window in time during which each species has an advantage.
