5.      I measure the use of nuts, trees and nesting materials by two species of squirrel and find some strong overlaps in the uses of nesting materials in particular.  Is it safe to conclude that these two species are competitors?  Why or why not?

You can assume that they are competitors if their population is growing and the food supply is decreasing, therefore natural selection will occur, or "survival of the fittest". For example, if one squirrel can eat more at once or can get to the food faster, then they will survive because they are better equipped to eat the provided food supply.
