There are symbiotic relationships between animals and bacteria in the digestive area. The animals give the bacteria a place to live and the bacteria help break down food. Digestion would be a lot more difficult without these symbiotic relationships.

What are some examples of competition in symbiotic interactions or relationships?

Within a symbiotic relationship, there is no competition because the organisms work together. A symbiotic relationship can make an organism a better competitor in an environment, if that's what you're asking about. A classic example of a symbiotic relationship is the rhododendron. There is a fungus which grows on the roots of the rhododendron bush, which secretes toxins into the soil which kill off nearby plants, including trees larger than the bush itself. This reduces competition for light, nutrients and space. This makes the rhododendron a seriously dangerous competitor in any environment, and it's all thanks to the symbiotic relationship with the fungus.
