Salt tends to dehydrate plants and animals that come in contact with it in large quantities. Most plants that are not growing in the salt marches have a relatively low tolerance for salt and will die. You can see the brown grass in the spring time along the roads and sidewalks. Small organisms, bacteria and small animals can be dehydrated to the point of death. Preserving with salt has been a preservative for many centuries, because it prevents the bacteria from growing.

The opposite could either be harmed, or not helped (ignored, abandoned).


There are at least three types of interspecific relationships that two organisms can have. One is beneficial to both, and is called mutual. Lichens are an example of a mutualistic relationship. Parasitic relationships are where one organism benefits and the other is harmed. And lastly, competition, where both organisms are harmed. There is a fourth kind, where one organism benefits and the other is unaffected, but I can't remember what it's called. Could be symbiosis, too.

Animals are harmed many ways, sadly. People could abuse them, by hitting them, or putting a collar too tight on them. They could make them fight each other, or even shoot them. Sometimes they harm them not physically, but by doing things like not giving them water, food, or medical treatment they need. Other ways could be just natural, like if they are harmed by a disease or sickness. -QuestionKat

Say, for example, you have a basic food pyramid consisting of two levels. A tree and caterpillars. The dry mass of the caterpillars mentioned on the level, which could be any amount of caterpillars, is the weight of the caterpillars minus any water. It's the same for all of the levels, but the number tends to be greater on the lower levels. The only two ways to work this out is to "Dry out" the organisms, which would kill them, or by estimating it using an average dry mass for the organism mentioned.


Harmless organisms could be genetically engineered to have surface proteins from disease-causing organisms.



They have horns to defend their family and themselves, otherwise they could be harmed or even eaten by some other animals.


Um, I think you can't because an animal could be harmed from it, like eat it or could get hurt from it like a person when their foot hits against a pin.


There are many different views on this topic. I believe that it was created by God. Science is based on principles and mathematical understandings. The odds of everything being created by chance is astronomical (wow that sounded like my teacher).I think that life came into existence do to the fact of creation, too. According to scientists, the early Earth's atmosphere contained no free oxygen. They say that the first life forms would have been killed by oxygen. So how did the earth's atmosphere get from no oxygen to oxygen without all of us dying???This is why I believe in creation.Firstly, the atmosphere got oxygen without us dying because evolution played it's part:A few organism could tolerate slightly higher levels of oxygen.The oxygen level rises slightly.The organisms that couldn't tolerate the rises of oxygen died out.The small numbers of organisms that could tolerate the change reproduce.A few organisms could stand even higher levels of oxygen.The oxygen level rises slightly.The organisms that couldn't tolerate the rises of oxygen died out.The small numbers of organisms that could tolerate the change reproduce.A few organisms could stand even higher levels of oxygen.The oxygen level rises slightly.The organisms that couldn't tolerate the rises of oxygen died out.The small numbers of organisms that could tolerate the change reproduce.The process continues until we have the atmosphere we have today.Secondly the universe has billions of billions of billions of stars and a huge amount of time for coincidences to happen. At any place or time it could happen so there is a large chance of this happening when you add all the small chance together.
