Fixed the numbers of Gerbillus pyramidum in six 1-ha enclosures but allowed individuals of G. allenbyi to move between adjacent enclosures and the surrounding environment over 1-yr. The resulting isocline was very similar to that obtained during a short term study (see 91L/09153). The isocline was nonlinear and agreed with the unique predictions of the theory of optimal density-dependent habitat selection in two-species, shared-preference systems. -from Authors
