3 Types of Symbiosis
Transcript of 3 Types of Symbiosis
Mutualism is just one of the different types of symbiotic relationships. Mutualism is a symbiotic relationship where both organisms benefit from the association.
Simbiosis is a relationship between organisms that lasts through their whole lifetime. There are three types of symbiosis.
3 Types of Symbiosis
Commensalism is a symbiotic relationship in which one organism is benefited and one is harmed.
How does it effect the organisms?
Both organisms benefit from this type of relationship. Different organisms can benefit eachother in different ways.
Examples of Mutualism
1. Plover bird and Crocodile: The bird sits in the crocodile's mouth and picks the leeches out. The bird gets protection while the crocodile gets a teeth cleaning.
2. Ants and Acaia Tree: The ant gains food and shelter, while the tree gains protection from herbivores and omnivors.
Parasitism is a symbiotic relationship in which one organism is harmed and one is helped.
Mosquito and Human
A mosquito and human is a great example because the human is harmed, but the mosquito is benefited. The human's blood is lost, and the mosquito gets food.
Tomato Hornworm and Wasp
This symbiotic relationship represents parasitism really well. The wasp lays eggs beneath the worm's skin and the worm eventually dies from the wasps living there. The wasp is granted with a place to live and hatch, but the worm is killed
How are the Organisms Affected?
In this relationship, one organism benefits, but one is not affected at all. (It is neither harmed or benefited)
Whale and Barnacle
The whale and banacle definantely represents commensalism. The banacle gets a ride and other benefits, while the whale is not affected in any way.
Shark and Remora Fish
The fish in this relationship recieves a great benefit. It recieves a ride and food, because it eats all of the leftovers from the shark. The shark does not have any reaction to this relationship.
