    Abstract

    Examined great reed warbler Acrocephalus arundinaceus, reed warbler A. scirpaceus and moustached warbler A. melanopogon. Seasonal changes in the occurrence of territorial males in a reed bed along a gradient from the shore landward were studied. Intra- and interspecific spacing depends on interspecific dominance and/or ecological constraints. There is competition for common habitats between reed warblers and greet reed warblers, whereas moustached warbler is ecologically segregated. Territorial spacing might function to reduce nest predation. -from Authors
