interactions between individuals of different species that benefit both partners
nectar-secreting glands found on structures other than flowers, such as leaves
tissue made up of the actively dividing cells responsible for plant growth
an association between a fungus and plant roote in which the fungus forms a mantle around roots and a netlike structure around root cells
a heterotrophic organism that kills and eats other organisms for food
an insect whose larva consumes its host and kills it in the process
a range of values within which the true population mean occurs with a particular probability called the level of confidence
an organism that lives in or on another organism, called the host, deriving benefits from it

one minus the significance level, alpha, which is generally 0.05
cell growth in which all cell constituents, such as nitrogen, carbon, and DNA, increase at approximately the same rate.
long, thin filaments that form the basic structural unit of fungi
mycorrhizae in which the mycorrhizal fungus produces arbuscules (sites of exchange between plant and fungus), hyphae (fungal filaments), and vesicles (fungal energy storage organs
