How do symbiotic interactions impact digestion?
February 25, 2010 1:34AM
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.

Asked in Science
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.

What is the symbiotic relationship of parasitic plants?
Symbiosis means long-term interactions between different biological species. The symbiotic relationship may be categorized as mutualistic, commensal, or parasitic in nature. Some symbiotic relationships are obligate, meaning that both species depend entirely on each other for survival. Others are facultative, meaning that they can but do not have to live with the other organism. Symbiotic relationships include those associations in which one organism lives on another (ectosymbiosis, such as mistletoe), or where one partner lives inside the other (endosymbiosis, such as lactobacilli and other bacteria in humans or zooxanthelles in corals).

What are the symbiotic relationships between animals and other animal?
'Symbiosis' literally means 'living together', and symbiotic organisms are those that live at least most of their lives with another. Most consider symbiosis to pertain only to non harmful interactions, where at least one of the organisms gains something from the interaction, be it shelter, food, increased possibility to reproduce, etc.
