  3. symbiotic relationships
  4. competitive exclusion
  5. resource partitioning
  1. a The mutual influence on the evolution of two different species interacting with each other and reciprocally influencing each other's adaptations
  2. b A defense where one species is selected to look like another species which has an effective defense.
  3. c The concept that when populations of two similar species compete for the same limited resources, one population will use the resources more efficiently and have a reproductive advantage that will eventually lead to the elimination of the other population
  4. d The division of environmental resources by coexisting species such that the niche of each species differs by one or more significant factors from the niches of all coexisting species
  5. e An ecological relationship between organisms of two different species that live together in direct contact

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. An interaction between species in which one species, the predator, eats the other, the prey
  2. a disease causing organism
  3. A type of ecological succession that occurs in a virtually lifeless area, where there were originally no organisms and where soil has not yet formed
  4. All of the variety of life; usually refers to the variety of species that make up a community; concerns both species richness (the total number of different species) and the relative abundance of the different species
  5. A type of succession that occurs where an existing community has been cleared by some disturbance that leaves the soil intact

  3. Island Biogeography theoryAll of the variety of life; usually refers to the variety of species that make up a community; concerns both species richness (the total number of different species) and the relative abundance of the different species

          

  4. communitiesAll the organisms that inhabit a particular area; an assemblage of populations of different species living close enough together for potential interaction

          

  5. mutualismA symbiotic relationship in which both participants benefit
