Symbiosis Nathalie Zimmermann

  1. 1. “Together Life”<br />SymbiosisBy Nathalie zimmermann<br />
  2. 2. The meaning of symbiosis <br />The word symbiosis means “living together”, referring to organisms which live closely together using each other.<br />Different types of symbiosis exist which I will describe now:<br />Parasitism:<br />A parasite is an organism which lives of another one using it as food, shelter and could even damage the host.<br />Example: Flea bites<br />Commensalism: <br />This describes a relationship in which both organisms do not harm each other and share their food.<br />Example: Flatworm living on a crab<br />Mutualism:<br />This describes organisms which live together and benefit from each other. <br />Example: example a mushroom growing on the trunk of a tree.<br />
  3. 3. A Conversation Between A Flower & A Bee<br />Flower: <br /> “Hey bee buddy, why do you keep on buzzing around me and ruffling my petals?”<br />Bee:<br /> “Hey Miss Flower, you shouldn’t be complaining. I know you want to look pretty and all but when I come and visit you to get my sip of nectar, your pollen gets stuck on my furry body but when I go to the next flower the pollen I collected from you gets transported to another flower.”<br />Flower: <br /> “Ok, ok you got a point here. I think you Bee guys are doing great at your job on helping us flowers cross- pollinate, and I do enjoy it when you come and visit the flowers. But I just want to you to be careful because my petals are delicate and they could fall off easily.”<br />Bee: <br /> “Iunderstand. I will let my friends, the Pollen Jocks know.”<br />Flower: <br />“Great! See you later Bee!!!! “<br />
  4. 4. Organisms & their environments<br />
  5. 5. Comparison<br />This chart compares the two different organisms:<br />Penguin:<br /><ul><li>Cold , wet, icy environment
  6. 6. Lots of water , very low temperatures below zero
  7. 7. Lives in Antarctica or places which are really cold
  8. 8. It is an animal
  9. 9. Feathers keep heat in
  10. 10. Can swim very fast, with heavy bones which keeps them under water</li></ul>Cactus: <br /><ul><li> Hot , dry , sunny environment
  11. 11. Not very much water or rain available
  12. 12. Grows in deserts or any other hot, dry place
  13. 13. It is a plant
  14. 14. Thick skin keeps heat out
  15. 15. Spiky outside to prevent animal to eat it</li></li></ul><li>A penguin in the desert<br />Imagine a penguin in the desert searching for food and water, and cold weather.<br />His black feather costume would absorb more heat than it could take. There would<br />be no icy cold waters around to dip in and go for a swim.<br />The webbed feet might help in desert to move in the sand<br />It is very unlikely that the penguin would survive in the desert , as they need a lot<br />of water to exercise and the cold weather.<br />Every organism has been placed in a n environment they belong in and cannot be <br />taken to other places so easily.<br />
  16. 16. Design an organism- Seal<br />Whiskers<br />Body<br />Fins<br />Flipper<br />The seal lives in Antarctica, because of the cold weather and the water so he can <br />hunt for fish.<br />He uses his fins and flippers to move quickly through the water. His body carries<br />a lot of fat to keep him warm in the icy waters.<br />Their flippers and fins have evolved over time to become good swimmers.<br />
