Ecology deals with the interactions of organisms with one another. Examples of the types of interactions are predation, parasitism, mutualism, and commensalism. How do these relationships differ from one another?
an interaction between two or more species, where species derive a mutual
benefit, for example an increased carrying capacity
benefits one organism and the other organism is neither benefited nor harmed
Remora living with a shark
is a non-mutual symbiotic relationship between species, where one species, the
parasite, benefits at the expense of the other, the host.
predation is a biological interaction where a predator (an organism that is
hunting) feeds on its prey (the organism that is attacked)
