• Interspecific competition is an important evolutionary force, influencing interactions between species and shaping the composition of biological communities. In mammalian carnivores, to reduce the risks of negative encounters between competitors, species can employ a strategy of temporal partitioning, adapting activity patterns to limit synchrono...

Full-text available
Among species, coexistence is driven partly by the partitioning of available resources. The mechanisms of coexistence and competition among species have been a central topic within community ecology, with particular focus on mammalian carnivore community research. However, despite growing concern regarding the impact of humans on the behaviour of s...

Temperature is increasing in Arctic and sub-Arctic regions at a higher rate than anywhere else in the world. The frequency and nature of precipitation events are also predicted to change in the future. These changes in climate are expected, together with increasing human pressures, to have significant impacts on Arctic and sub-Arctic species and ec...

Human-bear conflicts arethe single most important threat to long-term conservation of brown bear in Europe. Increasing conflicts and inefficient conflict resolution also increase fear for personal safety among local people and increase loss of their property. Therefore effective conflict resolution is of top priority for bear management and conserv...

Interspecific competition and resource partitioning are strong evolutionary forces, shaping communities. The mechanisms of coexistence and competition among species have been a central topic within community ecology, with a particular focus on mammalian carnivore community research. However, the influence of humans and their activities on those processes is still poorly understood. This project will first review the existing literature on spatial, temporal, and trophic niche partitioning in carnivore communities to propose a theoretical framework covering the three main outcomes of the impact of humans on resource partitioning, intraguild competition and community structure. Secondly, we will evaluate the relative influence of a range of human, meteorological and ecological variables on the coefficients of temporal overlap within carnivore communities on a global scale, using data extracted from the existing literature. Finally, the methodology and reasoning employed by the currently available literature to calculate the coefficient of temporal overlap between pairs of species will be evaluated. Key guidelines and recommendations will be provided to future studies to develop an improved and standardised research practice on the study of animal activity pattern and temporal partitioning. This project fills an important knowledge gap on the effects of human pressures on carnivore communities, by focusing on the impacts on niche partitioning and coexistence.
