  • Symbiotic Relationship Between Clownfish And Mutualism

    Symbiosis or a symbiotic relationship is a close a relationship/interaction between two organisms of different species. The three main types of symbiosis are mutualism, parasitism, and commensalism. Mutualism is the symbiotic relationship where both the species benefits from the other. For example, clownfish live in sea anemones and because of this the clownfish eventually become immune to the paralyzing sting of the sea anemone. The sea anemone gives the clownfish a home and protects the clownfish from predators while the clownfish can attract other fish into the sea anemone giving it food. The clownfish also eats any leftovers keeping the sea anemone clean. On the other hand, parasitism is the symbiotic relationship between two organisms where one of the organism lives off the other. An example of this could be fleas on a dog. The dog is the host and the fleas live off the dog by sucking its blood and shelters in their fur. Finally, the last type of symbiotic relationship is commensalism. Commensalism is when one of the two species benefits while the other is neither affected nor harmed. An example of commensalism is barnacles attaching themselves to whales. The barnacles get a ride from the whales which allows the barnacles to eat microorganisms along the way. On the other hand, the whales are not benefited or harmed by the barnacles. In this paper, I will discuss the symbiotic relationships between bees and their flowers and ant and their plants. Bees transfer pollen…
