What organisms live in other organisms?
They are called symbiotic organisms. There are 4 basic forms of symbiosis: A "commensal" organism is one that lives in, on, or with another, and benefits in some way without affecting the other. (e.g. an orchid) A mutualistic organism is one that benefits and provides a benefit. (e.g. gut bacteria) An "amensal" organism does not benefit, but does harm. (e.g. accidental predation) A "parasite" (parasitic organism) is a plant or animal that lives on or within another living organism at the expense of that organism. (e.g. toxic bacteria)

Mutualism is a relationship when 2 living organisms benefit from each other's presence. Good example? You and bacteria living in your stomach.

Bees and flower - bees receive food (pollen and nectar) while the plant benefits from the bees pollinating them.
