Data from: Competition and resource breadth shape niche variation and overlap in multiple trophic dimensions

Raul Costa-Pereira, Marcio S. Araújo, Franco L. Souza & Travis Ingram
Competition plays a central role in the maintenance of biodiversity. A backbone of classic niche theory is that local coexistence of competitors is favoured by the contraction or divergence of species’ niches. However, this effect should depend on the diversity of resources available in the local environment, particularly when resources vary in multiple ecological dimensions. Here, we investigated how available resource breadth (i.e., prey diversity) and competition together shape multidimensional niche variation (between and within...
