How are predation and parasitism similar and different?
Predation and parasitism are similar because they both have one organism feeding on another. The difference is that in predation the organism kills the other ,while in parasitism, the organism feeds on it while letting it live. For example, a lion can't eat an antelope if it lets it live (predation), but a flea can't feed on a dog if the dog isn't alive (parasitism).
