what is the difference between intra and inter competition



  1. 0 Votes

    Intraspecific competition is competition within a species. This is usually over common resources like mates or nesting sites.

    Interspecific competition refers to competition between different species, i.e. several tree species in a forest competing for light. There are two types of interspecific competition: exploitation and interference. Exploitation occurs when two species indirectly compete for the same resources. Interference means that one species is directly preventing another from getting resources or occupying a space.

    Intraspecies is within the same species whereas interspecies is between different species. So intraspecies competition is when, say, two cheetahs compete for the same antelope and interspecies competition is when a cheetah and a lion hunt the same antelope. Besides prey, competition occurs for habitats and mates.
