7. The drawing above shows the results of an experiment involving three juniper plants that were allowed to grow in the same environmental conditions. One set of plants were infused with lichen (fungus) attached to their rootsand the other set without. Based upon the results the experiment, what conclusion could be drawn?

a. Both the lichen and the fungus received a benefit from the relationship, making this an example of mutualism

  • b. Both the lichen and the fungus received a benefit, making this an example of commensalism

    c. The fungus was hurt, while the lichen was benefitted, making it an example of a parasitic relationship

  • d. The lichen was hurt, while the fungus was benefitted, making it anexample of a parasitic relationship.
