Resource competition and shared natural enemies in experimental insect communities.
Much theory has been developed to explore how competition for shared resources (exploitation competition) or the presence of shared natural enemies (apparent competition) might structure insect and other communities. It is harder to predict what happens when both processes operate simultaneously. We describe an experiment that attempted to explore how shared natural enemies and resource competition structured a simple experimental insect community. Replicated communities were assembled in pop...Expand abstract
