Symbiotic Relationships

Symbiotic Relationships

Some of the most fascinating animal behavior involves interaction and cooperation between different species. There are many types of symbiotic relationship not all beneficial to both parties, but the purpose of this Mission is to share spottings that show mutualistic and cooperative interactions - those relationships that benefit both parties. Please provide some information on the relationship and how it benefits each species with each spotting you add to this mission. Sign in to join mission

Symbiosis is close and often long-term interaction between different biological species. There are many example of this in nature; flowering plants and pollinators such as bees and flies, leafcutter ants and the fungus they "farm", oxpeckers and large mammals, manta rays and cleaner fish, and many more.
