The organisms, each termed a symbiontmay be of the same or of different species. InHeinrich Anton de Bary defined it as "the living together of unlike organisms". The term was subject to a century-long debate about whether it should specifically denote mutualism, as in lichens ; biologists have now abandoned that restriction. Symbiosis can be obligatory, which means that one or both of the symbionts entirely depend on each other for survival, or facultative optional when they can generally live independently.
Symbiosis is also classified by physical attachment; symbiosis in which the organisms have bodily union is called conjunctive symbiosis, and symbiosis in which they are not in union is called disjunctive symbiosis.
The definition of symbiosis was a matter of debate Five - Phonic Senses - Liquid Poison years. InEdward Haskell proposed an integrative approach with a classification of "co-actions",  later adopted by biologists as "interactions". Relationships can be obligate, meaning that one or both of the symbionts entirely depend on each other for survival. For example, in lichenswhich consist of fungal and photosynthetic symbionts, the fungal partners cannot live on their own.
Endosymbiosis is any symbiotic Soulraped - Symbiontic - Bioconstruct in which one symbiont lives within the tissues of the other, either within the cells or extracellularly. Ectosymbiosis is any symbiotic relationship in which the symbiont lives on the body surface of the hostincluding the inner surface of the digestive tract or the ducts of exocrine glands. Competition can be defined as an interaction between organisms or species, in which the fitness of one is lowered by the presence of another.
Limited supply of at least one resource such as foodwaterand territory used by both usually facilitates this type of interaction, although the competition may also exist over other 'amenities', such as females for reproduction in case of male organisms of the same species.
Mutualism or interspecies reciprocal altruism is a long-term relationship between individuals of Soulraped - Symbiontic - Bioconstruct species where both individuals benefit. A large percentage of herbivores have mutualistic gut flora to help them digest plant matter, which is more difficult to digest than animal prey. An example of mutualism is the relationship between the ocellaris clownfish that dwell among the tentacles of Ritteri sea anemones.
The territorial fish protects the anemone from anemone- eating fish, and in turn the stinging tentacles of the anemone protect the clownfish from Soulraped - Symbiontic - Bioconstruct predators. A special mucus on the clownfish protects it from the stinging tentacles. A further example is the gobya fish which sometimes lives together with a shrimp. The shrimp digs and cleans up a burrow in the sand in which both the shrimp and the goby fish live. The shrimp is almost blind, leaving it vulnerable to predators when outside its burrow.
In case of danger, the goby touches the shrimp with its tail to warn it. When that happens both the shrimp and goby quickly retreat into the burrow. A non-obligate symbiosis is seen in encrusting bryozoans and hermit crabs. The bryozoan colony Acanthodesia commensale develops a cirumrotatory growth and offers the crab Pseudopagurus granulimanus a helicospiral-tubular extension of its living chamber that initially was situated within a gastropod shell.
Many types of tropical and sub-tropical ants have evolved very complex relationships with certain tree species. In endosymbiosis, the host cell lacks some of the Soulraped - Symbiontic - Bioconstruct which the endosymbiont provides.
As a result, the host favors endosymbiont's growth processes within itself by producing some specialized cells. These cells affect the genetic composition of the host in order to regulate the increasing population of the endosymbionts and ensure that these genetic changes are passed onto the offspring via vertical transmission heredity.
A spectacular example of obligate mutualism is the relationship between the siboglinid tube worms and symbiotic bacteria that live at hydrothermal vents and cold seeps. The Soulraped - Symbiontic - Bioconstruct has no digestive tract and Soulraped - Symbiontic - Bioconstruct wholly reliant on its internal symbionts for nutrition.
The bacteria oxidize either hydrogen sulfide or methane, which the host supplies to them. These worms were discovered in the late s at the hydrothermal vents near Living In The Past - Various - Metallic Overdrive Galapagos Islands and have since been found at deep-sea hydrothermal vents and cold seeps in all of the world's oceans.
As the endosymbiont adapts to the host's lifestyle, the endosymbiont changes dramatically. The decrease in genome size is due to loss of protein coding genes and not due to lessening of inter-genic regions or open reading frame ORF size. Species that are naturally evolving and contain reduced sizes of genes can be accounted for an increased number of noticeable differences between them, thereby leading to changes in their evolutionary rates.
When endosymbiotic bacteria related with insects are passed on to the offspring strictly via vertical genetic transmission, intracellular bacteria go across many hurdles during the process, Real Bad News - Aimee Mann - Lost In Space in the decrease in effective population sizes, as compared to the free-living bacteria.
The incapability of the endosymbiotic bacteria to reinstate their wild type phenotype via a recombination process I Come That Ye Might Have Eternal Life - Thompson United Gospel Singers - Angel Fire Soulraped - Symbiontic - Bioconstruct Muller's ratchet phenomenon.
Muller's ratchet phenomenon, together with less effective population sizes, leads to an accretion of deleterious mutations in the non-essential genes of the intracellular bacteria. Commensalism describes a relationship between two living organisms where one benefits and the other is not significantly harmed or helped. Soulraped - Symbiontic - Bioconstruct is derived from the English word commensalused of human social interaction. It derives from a medieval Latin word meaning sharing food, formed from com- with and mensa table.
Commensal relationships may involve one organism using another for transportation phoresy or for housing inquilinismor it may also involve one organism using something another created, after its death metabiosis. Examples of Soulraped - Symbiontic - Bioconstruct are hermit crabs using gastropod shells to protect their bodies, and spiders building their webs on plants.
In a parasitic relationshipthe parasite benefits while the host is harmed. Mimicry is a form of symbiosis in which a species adopts distinct characteristics of another species to alter its relationship dynamic with the species being mimicked, to its own advantage. Batesian mimicry is an exploitative three-party interaction where one species, the mimic, has evolved to mimic another, the model, to deceive a third, the dupe.
In terms of signalling theorythe mimic and model have evolved to send a signal; the dupe has evolved to receive it from the model. This is to the advantage of the mimic but to the detriment of both the model, whose protective signals are effectively weakened, and of the dupe, which is deprived of an edible prey. For example, a wasp is a strongly-defended model, which signals with its conspicuous black and yellow coloration that it is an unprofitable prey to predators such as birds which hunt by sight; many hoverflies are Batesian mimics of wasps, and any bird that avoids these hoverflies is a dupe.
Amensalism is an asymmetric interaction where one species is harmed or killed by the other, and one is unaffected by the other.
Competition is where a larger or stronger organism deprives a smaller or weaker one from a resource. Antagonism occurs when one organism is damaged or killed by another through a chemical secretion. An example of competition is a sapling growing under the shadow of a mature tree. The mature tree can rob the sapling of necessary sunlight and, if the mature tree is very large, it Lets Go All The Way - Various - 20 Original Chart Hits - 1986 take up rainwater and deplete soil nutrients.
Throughout the process, the mature tree is unaffected by the sapling. Indeed, if the sapling dies, the mature tree gains nutrients from the decaying sapling.
An example of antagonism is Juglans nigra black walnutsecreting juglonea substance which destroys many herbaceous plants within its root zone. Amensalism is often used to describe strongly asymmetrical competitive interactions, such as between the Spanish ibex and weevils of the genus Timarcha which feed upon the same type of shrub.
Whilst the presence of the weevil has almost no influence on food availability, the presence of ibex has an enormous detrimental effect on weevil numbers, as they consume significant quantities of plant matter and incidentally ingest the weevils upon it. Cleaning symbiosis is an association between individuals of two species, where one the cleaner removes and eats parasites and other materials from the surface of the other the client.
Cleaning symbiosis is well-known among marine fish, where some small species of cleaner fishnotably wrasses but also species in other genera, are specialised to feed almost exclusively by cleaning larger fish and other marine animals. Symbiosis is increasingly recognized as an important selective force behind evolution;   many species have a long history of interdependent co-evolution.
Eukaryotes plants, animals, fungi, and protists developed by symbiogenesis from a symbiosis between bacteria and archaea. Soulraped - Symbiontic - Bioconstruct biologist Lynn Margulisfamous for her work on endosymbiosiscontended that symbiosis is a major driving force behind evolution. She considered Darwin's notion of evolution, driven by competition, to be incomplete and claimed that evolution is strongly based on co-operationinteractionand mutual dependence among organisms.
According to Margulis and her son Dorion Sagan" Life did not take over the globe by combatbut by networking. Flowering plants and the animals that pollinate them have co-evolved. Many plants that are pollinated by insects in entomophilybatsor birds in ornithophily have highly specialized flowers modified to promote pollination by a specific pollinator that is correspondingly adapted. The first flowering plants in Love Me Forever - Motörhead - Everything Louder Than Everything Else (DVD) fossil record had Blue Moon - Elvis Presley - The Best Of Elvis Presley simple flowers.
Adaptive speciation quickly gave rise to many diverse groups of plants, and, at the same time, corresponding Soulraped - Symbiontic - Bioconstruct occurred in certain insect groups. Some groups of plants developed nectar and large sticky pollen, while insects evolved more specialized morphologies to access Soulraped - Symbiontic - Bioconstruct collect these rich food sources.
In some taxa of plants and insects, the relationship has become dependent,  where the plant species can only be pollinated by one species of insect. The acacia ant Pseudomyrmex ferruginea is an obligate plant ant that protects at least five species of "Acacia" Vachellia [a] from preying insects and from other plants competing for sunlight, and the tree provides nourishment and shelter for the ant and its larvae.
