Why Cant We All Just Get Along? Objective: To explain the types of relationships that exist between organisms Bell work: Define the following terms in your own words: 1. Competition: To fight for a resource 2. Predator: The organism that hunts 3. Prey: The organism that gets eaten Getting Nerdy, Predation: interaction where one organism (predator) kills another organism for food (prey)

Getting Nerdy, Competition: struggle between organisms to survive as they attempt to use the same limited resource Getting Nerdy, Limiting Factors of Ecosystems Limiting factor: an environmental condition or resource that limits the size of a population of organisms. What are examples of limiting factors? -Food -Water -Weather

-Accidents -Natural Catastrophe -Disease -Predators -Space/Habitat -Mate -Competition The largest population an area can support is its carrying capacity which is driven by limiting factors. Getting Nerdy, Interactions of Living Things Symbiosis: close relationship created between two species due to coevolution (species evolve together in their environment). The relationship must benefit at least one of the species.

= Getting Nerdy, OR ? There are three types of symbiotic relationships: Mutualism (+,+): relationship where both species benefit Clownfish & Sea Anemone Getting Nerdy,

Buffalo & Tickbird Bumblebee & Flowers Commensalism (+,0): relationship where one species benefits and the other species is neither helped nor harmed Shark & Remora Spanish Moss & Trees Getting Nerdy, Elephant & Egret Parasitism (+,-): relationship where one species benefits

(parasite) while the other is harmed (host) Ticks & Mammals Getting Nerdy, Cuckoo Bird & Bird Nests Mosquitoes & Mammals Wanted: Symbiotic Relationship Apply Within! Getting Nerdy, What You Do:

Create a classified advertisement/want ad for a job opening in which an organism in a symbiotic relationship is looking for the other organism. The ad should be based on a mutualistic, parasitic, or commensalistic relationship. Headline describing job Create a catchy headline to grab attention. Write a line describing the relationship you are seeking (mutualistic, parasitic, commensalistic), a line about who you are and the qualities you possess, a line about the type of organism you need for the job (Qualifications), a line about why you need this service, and a line describing what you will give the organism in return for his or her services. Picture accompanying advertisement: A picture showing you, the organism in search of the other organism. A picture showing the organism of which you are searching. A picture showing the two of you together in your symbiotic relationship - can be hand-drawn. Must be neat and colorful

Materials to use To create this ad, use construction paper, copy paper, magazine/newspaper cutouts, clip art, computer graphics, photographs, hand drawn images, etc. The ad can be done as a PowerPoint presentation, brochure, newspaper ad, magazine ad, poster, prezi presentation, glogster, etc. Getting Nerdy, WANTED: Lazy Pup with Short Nails Desperately seeking a parasitic relationship.
