Does interspecific behavioural interference limit the ability of species to range shifts? I workon a genus of damselflies,Hetaerina, where species engage and experience varying levels ofaggressive and reproductive interference. Do the ranges ofHetaerinaspecies that experience lower levels of interspecific interference expand more rapidly?
