Ecosystems, Biomes, Food Webs, Symbiosis

A type of symbiosis in which one species is helped and the other is neither helped nor harmed Commensalism
A type of symbiosis in which BOTH species are helped or benefit Mutualism
A type of symbiosis in which one species is helped and the other is harmed Parasitism
A large group of similar ecosystems that share a similar climate Biome
A type of consumer who only eats plants Herbivore
A type of consumer who eats other animals Carnivore
All the living and nonliving things in an area Ecosystem

A biome that has heavy rainfall, warm temperatures, and many different plant and animal species Tropical Rainforest
A biome that has grasses, few trees, some rainfall but dry spells that result in fires Grasslands
Humans and tapeworms Example of parasitism
clownfish and sea anemone Example of mutualism
a robin building a nest in an oak tree Example of Commensalism
