Symbiosis

“Living Together”

types of symbiosis
Types of Symbiosis
  • Mutualism
    • Both the symbiont and host benefit.
  • Commensalism
    • The symbiont benefits with little effect on the host.
  • Parasitism
    • The symbiont benefits to the detriment of the host.

Aegism

    • An association for protection
  • Inquilism
    • One organism shelters within another organisms
  • Endoecism
    • One org shelters in the burrow or defensive shelter of another
  • Phoresis
    • One org uses another for transportation
  • Epizoism
  • - A sessile org lives on top of another
slide6

Obligate Relationship:

Relationship is necessary for organism to survive

Ex. coral and zooxanthellae

Facultative Relationship:

Can survive without symbiont, but not as well

Ex. anemone fish and anemone

slide9

Zooxanthellae give corals:

  • Increase coral growth by enhancing calcification process
  • Provide energy
  • Give oxygen
  • Coral give zooxanthellae:
  • Nitrogen waste
  • A place to live
  • Carbon dioxide waste
  • Protection through their hard skeletons and stinging cells
  • Harmful UV light is filtered by coral pigments

Inquiry

  • Define mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism.
  • Provide examples of each.
  • What are the benefits the zooxanthellae and coral receive?
