Intraspecific competition when member of same species compete for the same resources in an ecosystem (trees growing close together compete for water, and nutrients from the soil) Interspecific competition members of different species compete for a shared resource (leopard and lion compete for same prey) Species divide shared resources by specializing in different ways. Effects of resource partitioning: character displacement characteristics diverge to lessen competition, disruptive selection.
