About Symbiosis

The word symbiosis comes from the Greeks, meaning ‘together’ and ‘life’, so literally it means: ‘living together’. In biology it often refers to a close relationship between two or more organisms. A symbiosis can be mutualistic: when both partner benefit from it; parasitic: when one partner benefits from it at the expense of the other; or, saprophytic: when one partner benefits and the other one is not affected.
