5 True/False questions
commensalism → A symbiotic relationship in which both participants benefit
coevolution → An interaction between species in which one species, the predator, eats the other, the prey
mutualism → A symbiotic relationship in which both participants benefit
richness → A mathematical measure of how the total number of individuals in an area are divided among the number of species in an area. In even communities, most species have about the same number of individuals present, where in uneven communities almost all individuals present belong to one species.
competitive exclusion → The mutual influence on the evolution of two different species interacting with each other and reciprocally influencing each other's adaptations
