Transcript of Commensalism

Pseudoscorpions and Beetles
They are different from other types of scorpions in the way that they do not have stingers. Some species of the pseudoscorpions hide themselves under the wing covers of large insects like beetles. This gives them protection from their predators, and also provides them a means of transportation over a larger area beetle does not benefit.

Remora Fish and Sharks
The remora has special suckers attached to its fins. It attaches itself to the bodies of sharks, and uses the shark for transportation as well as protection from its predators. It also eats up the scraps of food that are left over when the shark eats its prey and the shark does not benefit.

Orchids Growing on Branches of Trees
an association between two organisms in which one benefits and the other derives neither benefit nor harm.

It is a well-known epiphytic plant that grows on the branches or trunks of other trees. Orchids are usually found in dense tropical forests. They form their base of attachment on the branches of trees, and benefit by getting adequate sunlight and nutrition that flows down the branches and the tree does not benefits.

cattle egrets and live stock
This bird moves about in the pastures, and follows livestock such as cattle and horses. The cattle egret eats up the insects hiding under vegetation close to the grounds, which get stirred up when the cattle walk through them.The egret benefits the cattle does not.

The milkweeds contain a poisonous chemical known as cardiac glycoside, which is harmful to almost all vertebrates. The Monarch stores these poisonous chemicals in its body throughout its lifespan. When a bird eats a Monarch butterfly, it finds it distasteful, and gets sick. Thus, birds and other predators avoid eating the Monarch the milk weed does not benefit.

Birds Following Army Ants
A great number of army ants trail on the forest floor, and while moving, stir up many insects lying in their path. The birds follow these army ants and eat up the insects that try to escape from them.

Burdock Seeds on the Fur of Passing Animals
The burdock seeds have long, curved spines attached to them. They easily catch onto the fur of passing animals, which carry and drop off these seeds to other regions.
Barnacles and Whales
Cattle egret
As the whales move about, the barnacles find new habitats where food might be available. While the whales are on the move, the barnacles catch hold of floating plankton and other food material using their feather-like feet and the whale does not benefit.
Emperor Shrimp and Sea Cucumbers
These shrimp get protection as well as a mode of transportation to move about in larger areas in search of food, without spending any energy on their own. They get off from their host sea cucumber to feed, and get back on for a ride when they want to move to other areas.
commensalism. Sea cucumber does not benefit.

Decorator Crabs and Sea Sponges
In forming a commensal relationship with the sea sponges, they carve out small pieces of sponges and camouflage themselves using them. This adaption of the decorator crab provides protection for crab. This does not harm or benefit the sea cucumber

Where do i see God.
God created all of these biological relationships for a reason and all of them fit together.
interesting facts
1 interesting that one benefits and the other does not get anything out of it.
2 in most relationships nor benefits and the other suffers or both benefit
