sympatric v syntopic a question of scale

Postby gkerr » Wed Feb 15, 2006 4:38 am

Can anyone clarify the distinction between sympatric and syntopic particularly with regards scale. Eg within a reserve (10km2) with species found across the reserve but not cohabiting the same habitat types... Are they sympatric but not syntopic?
