Seasonal food habits of corsac and red foxes in Mongolia and the potential for competition

Abstract:

Competition often occurs between sympatric species that exploit similar ecological niches. Among canids, competition may be reduced by partitioning resources such as food, time, and habitat, but the mechanisms of coexistence remain poorly understood, particularly among fox species. We described the food habits of two foxes that live sympatrically across northern and central Asia, the corsac fox (Vulpes corsac) and red fox (v. vulpes), by analyzing scats collected during a fi...
