In accordance with the principle of competitive exclusion, no two species can live in the same place for a very long time and live together in a stable form. This is because species with similar niches tend to have similar needs, therefore, the competition for the same resources. We can talk about a niche to include descriptions such as the habitat, the agency of the history of life and its place in the food chain. As a result, one of the two species can adapt and occupy a similar niche, migrate to a less competitive area, or are eliminated, and die. One of the species to be more successful than the other. Sometimes, when the competition is not severe enough, one between the two species may evolve to have something different niche.
