  16. 29. Ants and aphids
  17. 31. What type of interaction is going on here?
  18. 32. Parasitism <ul><li>One organism lives on or inside another organism and harms it </li></ul><ul><li>Parasite obtains all or part of its nutrients from the other organism </li></ul><ul><li>Host </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Organism that is harmed in relation ship; the one that provides the nutrients to the parasite </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Parasite </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Organism that gets its nutrients from the host </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Do they want to kill their host? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No, because they need them…they will weaken or hurt the host in some way </li></ul></ul>
  19. 37. Recap <ul><li>What are the three types of interactions in a community? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Competition </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Predation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Symbiosis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>What types do we have? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mutualism </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Commensalism </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Parasitism </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>

  28. 54. Human Activity and Species Diversity <ul><li>Land clearing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Farmland </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Diverse forest replaced with single crop </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Decreases species diversity </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Introduced species </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Humans move a species from its native land to a new location, intentionally or accidentally </li></ul></ul>
