[Ecosystem] How does life interact?_01

[Ecosystem] interaction between living organisms_00
Various living creatures interact with each other. Each organism is affected by other organism or by natural surroundings such as temperature and humidity. Those in beneficial relationship form a symbiont while those mutually harmful try to stay away from each other as much as possible. Not all environments are equally habitable. Animals and plants gather around favorable environment and as such they tend to fiercely compete when such setting is limited.
Plants in desert are in many times distributed in orderly manner so as to minimize competition over scarce and limited water supply.
However there are some species competing with each other over overlapping and limited food source or habitat. A case in point can be trees in the forest. Trees compete to get more sun. [Ecosystem] interaction between living organisms_01
[Ecosystem] interaction between living organisms_02 If two species have lived together closely for a lengthy period they sometimes become mutual beneficiaries. We call this kind of ties 'symbiotic relations' and an example is that of tropical fish and sea anemone.
Sometimes two species establish predator-prey relationship and an example can be a water flea and Prussian carp. Also a rabbit is a prey of a tiger. [Ecosystem] interaction between living organisms_03
[Ecosystem] interaction between living organisms_04 In other type of ecological relation one species lives on other species, harming its host. Mistletoe is a parasite to oak tree and roundworm lives on human.
