"Volterra's work stimulated the detailed and incisive experimental studies of G. F. Gause and it was from his book, The Struggle for Existence, that the concept of competitive exclusion really entered the minds of biologists. In its less analytic and often weaker form, that closely allied species living together occupy different niches, the principle had been held by a number of naturalists working at least as early as 1857, but until the mathematical and experimental work of Volterra and Gause respectively, such a generalization evoked little sustained interest" (Hutchinson, Introduction to Population Ecology, p. 120).
