Double Displacement

Science / Chemistry / Double Displacement: A double displacement or metathesis is a reaction in which two reactants trade fragments: AB + CD = AC + BD, Most commonly, the fragments are ions, e. G. Agno3(aq) + nacl(aq) = agcl(s) + nano3(aq) MORE

Character Displacement

Science / Marine Biology / Character Displacement: A pattern in which two species with overlapping ecological requirements differ more when they co-occur than when they do not. The difference is usually in a morphological feature related to resource e MORE

Single Displacement
