biodiversity 1.0.

inter species compotition Inter specific competition, in ecology, is a form of competition in which individuals of different species compete for the same resource in an ecosystem (e.g. food or living space). The other form of competition is transpacific competition, which involves
symbiosis interaction between two different organisms living in close physical association, typically to the advantage of both.
niche the necessary cellular environment of a stem cell
variability variations within a specie
genus a class of things that have common characteristics and that can be divided into subordinate kinds.
commensilism in ecology, commensalism is a class of relationships between two organisms where one organism benefits from the other without affecting it.
species A species is often defined as the largest group of organisms where two hybrids are capable of reproducing fertile offspring, typically using sexual reproduction.
community a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.
ecosystem biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment.
paratism in biology/ecology, parasitism is a non-mutual symbiotic relationship between species, where one species, the parasite, benefits at the expense of the other, the host
population all the inhabitants of a particular town, area, or country
biological diversity Biodiversity is the variety of different types of life found on earth. It is a measure of the variety of organisms present in different ecosystems.
mutulism Mutualism is the way two organisms of different species exist in a relationship in which each individual benefits from the activity of the other.
resource partitioning So, when species divide a niche to avoid competition for resources, it is called resource partitioning.
