Best Answer

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.

Lichens are and alga and a fungus living together in a way that helps both of them this is an example of?

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.

What are some ways animals are harmed?

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
