Do black‐backed jackals exhibit spatial partitioning with African wild dogs and lions?

28 Sep 2020

This study determined if spatial partitioning occurred at different scales between jackals and both lions and African wild dogs. Research was carried out on De Beers Venetia Limpopo Nature Reserve (VLNR), where jackals were confirmed to be killed by African wild dogs. To our knowledge, this is the first study to investigate the spatial relationships between jackals and large carnivores. Our research will help determine whether jackals use spatial partitioning at different scales to coexist with large carnivores.
