en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Character_displacement

Character displacement is the phenomenon where differences among similar species whose distributions overlap geographically are accentuated in regions where the species co-occur, but are minimized or lost where the species’ distributions do not overlap. This pattern results from evolutionary change driven by biological competition among species for a limited resource (e.g. food).

Character displacement is a theory based off of Gause's Law, which states that no two species can occupy the exact same niche and flourish at the same population levels.

Other articles where Character displacement is discussed: community ecology: The effects of competition: This process, called character displacement, results as natural selection favours those individuals in each species that compete least with individuals of the other species. Experimental studies of coexisting seed-feeding rodents in the deserts of North America have shown that these species ...

Character displacement – trait evolution stemming from selection to lessen resource competition or reproductive interactions between species – has long been viewed as an important mechanism for enabling closely related species to coexist. Yet, the causes and consequences of character ...

Character displacement occurs when certain characteristics react to evolutionary factors and stimuli. This displacement allows closely related species to coexist in societies without creating different species, breeds or overgrowing the population of a species.
