    Species richness

    Explanation:

    Resource partitioning is a type of strategy of coexistence among species which allow species to use natural resources in different ways and it may be temporal or spatial

    There are two attributes of a community which will tend to lead to lower species richness in a community:

    1) Most species are generalists, utilizing a broad spectrum of resources : Species that can live in many different types of environments, and have a varied diet are considered generalists

    2) Most species are specialists, utilizing a narrow spectrum of resources: Specialists are those species that require very unique resources, these type of species have a very limited diet or need a specific habitat condition to survive
