Description:

Different species compete to survive and breed. The size of a predator population depends on the size of the prey population, and the reverse is true as well. Mutualism benefits both species involved in the relationship, but parasitism only benefits the parasite, not the host. This tutorial covers the concepts of competition, interdependence, mutualism, parasitism and predator/prey relationships in ecosystems.
