Table 2 Seasonal overlap in the use of waterholes by the 10 studied mammals. For an adequate interpretation of these results, it is recommended to see this table together with Fig. 2. Values shown correspond to the Watson’s U Test, which identifies differences between the distribution of the observations for two species. Non-significant relationships (in bold) indicate overlap between two species, while significance implies seasonal segregation. ***, **, and * indicate significance at the 0.001, 0.01, and 0.05 level, respectively

From: A small neighborhood well-organized: seasonal and daily activity patterns of the community of large and mid-sized mammals around waterholes in the Gobi Desert, Mongolia
