Though living organisms may not be of the same species, they still Such relationships are also necessary to understand the importance of Consider how plants come to inhabit different parts of the environment. Mutualism is when two organisms both help one another in a form of interdependence. commensalism, the relation between two different kinds of organisms when one community, a group of interdependent organisms inhabiting the same region. Other activities to help include hangman, crossword, word scramble, games, matching, This is an interdependent relationship between two different species.
Interdependency between animal and plant species
Animals use plants as a form of shelter within their environment. You can describe the interdependence of living organisms by stating how an organism builds its form of shelter.
For example, many birds reside within nests on the trees. They build their nests from twigs and sticks. Consider how plants come to inhabit different parts of the environment.
Plants are stationary organisms; and in order to pollinate different parts of the area, they depend upon the natural elements, such as wind and animals.
For example, the seeds of some plants can become attached to the fur of animals. When the animals move from one location to another, the seeds of the plant also become deposited in that new location.
Sciencing Video Vault Understand the basic dietary needs of animals. Some animals are herbivores, so they need to eat plants in order to survive. Carnivores eat meat in order to survive. Omnivores eat both plants and animals.
Unlike plants, animals cannot make their own food. So they need the other organisms in order to obtain the needed energy. Analyze the different participants in food chains. Survival This is the regular progression of species replacement that occurs after a disturbance, such as natural disaster, or during the establishment of a new habitat. Succession This is a type of photochemical air pollution that is a result of the interaction of sunlight with certain chemicals in the atmosphere.
This type of air pollution is very hazardous to you health. Smog An animal that eats the dead remains and wastes of other animals and plants. Scavenger A tropical grassland with sparse trees.
How to Describe the Interdependence of Living Organisms | Sciencing
Savanna This is one of the seven major biomes in which rainfall amounts are high and flora and fauna vary greatly; at least one-half of the the world's species are contained in these and primary productivity is extremely high.
Rain Forest This is an organism that supplies matter and energy, also known as an autotroph. Producer An animal that is killed and eaten by another animal. Prey This is an animal that lives by preying on other animals. Predator Water for a given biome.
Precipitation This is the way in which a species' population grow and shrink over time.

Population Dynamics The number of individuals of a species per unit area. Population Density All the individuals of a species that live together in one place at the same time Population This is the permanently frozen stratum below the artic tundra.
Permafrost This is an organism which feeds on, but usually does not kill, a larger organism. Parasite This is an organism obtains energy by eating both plants and animals. Omnivore These are organisims that are brought into a new environment, sometimes accidently, sometimes on purpose; and have no natural enemies or controls. Non-native Species This is the role of a species in an ecosystem, consisting of such things as what it eats, when it eats, and where it lives.
Niche This is the interaction of two organisms where both benefit. Mutualism This is an example of mutualistic symbiosis between the organisms of fungus and a photosynthetic alga.
Lichen This is an organism that gains energy by eating only plants. Herbivore The area where an organism lives its life including the living and nonliving factors.
Habitat One of several types of terrestrial biomes, where grasses form the predominant vegetation, usually mixed with herbs and sometimes with shrubs, but usually without trees. Grassland This H2O contains no significant amounts of salt.
Access to this is a critical issue for the survival of many species, including humans, especially in desert or otherwise arid areas.
Freshwater A representation of the linkages between food chains in a community. Food Web This is a path for the transfer of matter and energy through an ecosystem by eating and being eaten.
Food Chain The thin zone along a coastline where freshwater systems and rivers meet and mix with a salty ocean such as a bay, mouth of a river, salt marsh, lagoon. Estuary This is the biotic and abiotic factors that act upon organisms and affect their survival.
Environment This display graphically shows the energy that is available at each trophic level in a a food chain. Energy Pyramid Populations and abiotic factors with which they interact in the setting of a community. Ecosystem This is the study of organisms and their interactions with the environment. Ecology This is characterized by the transition in species composition of a biological community, often following an ecological disturbance of the community; the establishment of a biological community in an area virtually barren of life.
Ecological Succession An extremely dry period where water is far below typical levels.
