Symbiosis

What is Symbiosis?

Symbiosis is a situation in which 2 different organisms live together in close association. Just living in the same place is not enough. By "close association" biologists mean that if they are separated, one (or both!) of these organisms will probably die.There are 3 types of symbiosis, Mutualism, Parisitism, and Commensalism.

Mutualism

Mutualism is when both organisms benefit from the relationship. In this picture, ants are living in an young acacia plant.

Commensalism

Parisitism

Parasitism is when one organismbenefits and one is hurt by the relationship.

Commensalism is a relationship in which one organism benefits and the other is not affected. Orchids can illustrate this.
