Transcript of Symbiotic Relationships!!!!!!

Symbiotic Relationships By: Dhvani What is a Symbiotic Relationship? A symbiotic relationship is an interaction between organisms of different species living close to each other in a relationship that last over time. What are the three main types of symbiotic relationships? They are Mutualism, Parasitism, and Commensalism. What is Mutualism? Mutualsim is a relationship between two different organisms, in which each partner benefits from the relationship. What is Parasitism? Parasitism is a symbiotic relationship in which one organism benefits and the other organism is harmed. What is Commensalism? Commensalism is a symbiotic relationship in which one partner benefits and the other partner appears neither to lose nor to gain from the relationships. What type of symbiotic relationship might a flowering plant and an insect have? A flowering plant and an insect might have a mutualistic relationship. (mutualism) For example, a flower shares nectar with a bee. Bees carry pollen from one flower to another flower and fertilizes it.
Both benefit from the relationship.
The flower doesn't need the nectar, the only reason it it is there so that the bee can feed on it and also fertilize it.
This way the bee gains food and the flower gets fertilized.
No one loses anything and therefore it is a mutualistic relationship. What type of relationship might a whale and a barnacle living on the whale's back have? A whale and a barnacle living on the its back have might have a commensalistic relationship. (Commensalism) For example, barnacles attach themselves to a whales back for protection and safety.
The whale doesn't mind the barnacle begin there.
The barnacle gains a free ride and protection.
The whale don't lose anything nor does gain anything.
Therefore this is a commensalistic relationship. What type of relationship What type of relationship might a dog and a flea have? The dog and the flea might have a parasitic relationship. (Parasitism) For example, the flea lives on the dog and sucks on its blood by biting it.
So, the flea is parasite and the dog is the host.
The dog is losing blood and also getting hurt.
The flea gains food.
Therefore this is a parasitic relationship. What type of relationship might a nectar-eating bat and a flowering cactus have? A nectar-eating bat and a flowering cactus might have a mutualistic relationship. (Mutualism) For example, a flowering cactus shares nectar with a nectar-eating bat. The bat spreads the pollen from one flower to another flower.
Both benefit from the relationship.
The flowering cactus doesn't need the nectar, the only reason it it is there so that the nectar-eating bat can feed on it and also help the flower reproduce.
This way the nectar-eating bat gains food and the flower gets fertilized.
No one loses anything and therefore it is a mutualistic relationship. What is the type of relationship a bird and a water buffalo have? The bird and the water buffalo might have a mutualistic relationship. (Mutualism) For example, the buffalo provides bugs for the birds to eat which are on its body. The buffalo is alos getting rid of any bugs on his body.
So the bugs gain food from the buffalo.
And the water buffalo gets a free bug cleaning service from the bird.
They both benefit therefore it is a mutualistic relationship. Resources Used:
