Abstract: This study examines the structure of an Amphibian community. composed of 10 species in the Central System of Spain. We studied resource partitioning in the main dimensions of the niche (food, space and time). the overlap in each dimension and the overall overlap. From a multidimensional scaling analysis (MDS) of the overlap matrices we inferred that the spatial dimension is the main factor responsible for species segregation. Overlap along the time and food dimensions was significantly correlated. The community is structured into three guilds formed, respectively by the aquatic anurans. the terrestrial anurans together with a terrestrial salamander, and the newts.
