Abstract

Intraspecific or interspecific competition is then fundamentally the same: scramble competition is a good example of this type of competition. Modern ecology increasingly is faced with the question whether the data or a paper provide evidence for the statement that is made or for testing the hypotheses one believes in. Much of the research on antelopes and ungulates in general suffers from an exuberance of possible causes to explain numerical changes in study populations. Multi-causality is the bane of community ecology. The issue of facilitation of antelopes by zebra has been a long-running theme in African savanna ecology. The cases of competition are as follows: small antelopes competing with giraffe, cattle that compete with gaur, cattle that compete with deer, cattle that compete with impala, cattle that compete with buffalo, and buffalo that compete with African elephant and possibly blue wildebeest that compete with African elephant.
