Transcript of Symbiotic Relationship
Symbiosis: close relationship between species
Symbiotic relationship in which one organism benefits and the other is unaffected
Ex: monarch butterflies and milkweed
Ex: hermit crab to snail
Symbiotic relationship where one organism benefits and the other is harmed
Ex: ticks to humans
Ex: vampire bats to mammals
By: Samantha Garrett
Symbiotic relationship in which both species benefit
Ex: oxpecker and rhinoceros
Ex: flowers and bees
Oxpecker to Rhinoceros
The oxpecker lives on the back of the rhino and feeds off of the parasites found on the rhino's back.
Flowers to Bees
The bees get the nectar they need to make honey from the flower and brings pollen from one flower to another, resulting in pollenation.
Monarch butterflies to milkweed
The butterfly eat larva on milkweed. The larva is bitter and poisonous to birds so they know to stay clear of butterflies.
Hermit crab to snail
The hermit crab has to find a shell for shelter and use snail shells which are available because the snail died. The snail is unaffected.
Ticks to humans
The tick attaches to human skin and feeds off of the blood. The tick grows but the person loses blood. The person could also develop lymes disease.
Vampire bats to mammals
The bat feeds off of the blood of the mammal while the mammal loses blood.
