Species Interact In Biological Communities. By: Jennifer and Gabe. Compititon Between Species. interspecific competition: the competiton between species for food and other resources.

Limited amount of resources
2.Limited amount of (any food such as grass)
Alot more competition or animals move/migrate.
2. It puts the organisms out of balance because
the animals that eats grass dies
then the animal that eats the insect that died, diesCauses and Results of Inspecific Competition
Rabbits that were put on Austrialia:
Keep competing populations down
Some also havecolors that camoflague them so they can't be seen
Some have acute sense that help them find prey
Use camoflague, warning coloring, and mimicry
Others also retreat into safe locations
Other things (such as plants) have poisonous chemicalsAdaptions of Predator and Prey
A Symbiotic relationship is a close ecological relationship between two or more different species.
Symbiotic Relationship Terms:
-Mutualism:Both species benefit.
-Commensalism: One species benefits and the other is unaffected.
-Parasitism: One is benefited and the other is harmed.
-Competition: Neither species benefits.
-Neutralism: Both species are unaffected
These two speceies have a Mutually Benefical symbiotic relationship.
Clownfish have a protective skin thus they aren't harmed by the anemone.
-Barnacles are arthropods. The whale acts as
a rocky surface for the Barnacle to fix itself to.
-The Barnacle gains acces to Nutrient-rich
waters. The whale is not harmed.
Also called a parasitic relationship; one benefits and the other is harmed.
A parasite is what harms the host.
They can be inside or on the surface of the host.
Paracites rely on the host to survuve.
Koi Paracite- Feed on the Japenese Koi Fish. They attach to the outter layer of skin.
Meaning two organisims interact but neither are affected.
True neutralism is very rare or nonexistent.
It's usually found in situations that are remote or unimportant.
The Tarantula and the cactus in deserts is an example.
