Interspecific Interactions

Competition (--)

Individuals of different species compete for resources (e.g. food or living space) (Wikipedia).

Interference competition - one species takes resources from another.

Exploitative competition - consumption of resources so they cannot be used by another.

Apparent competition - occurs when two species share a predator


Predator-prey and parasite-host interactions (+-)

One species benefits while the other is harmed.
  • Parasitic
    • necrotrophic - kill their host
    • biotrophic - rely on their host surviving
  • Eats

Facilitation

Mutualism (++)

The way two organisms interact where each individual benefits (Wikipedia).
  • Pollination

Commensalism (+0)

One species benefits while the other is unaffected.
  • Lives in

Neutral (??)

No Interaction/Interaction unknown
  • Occurs with

Benefit/unknown (+?)

  • A know benefit to one partner (e.g. fungus) with the effect on the other unknown.
