Symbiosis


A symbiosis is a term referring to the interaction of two or more organisms of a different species. Colloquially, the word symbiosis is frequently interchanged for mutalisms, which are a specific type of symbiosis in which both organisms benefit from the interaction. However, symbioses can be more than just mutualistic.
