interactions between individuals of different species that benefit both partners
the relative selection costs or benefits associated with a particular biological trait
nectar-secreting glands found on structures other than flowers, such as leaves
mycorrhizae in which the mycorrhizal fungus produces arbuscules (sites of exchange between plant and fungus), hyphae (fungal filaments), and vesicles (fungal energy storage organs
an interaction between species that enhances the fitness of the exploiting individual-the predator, the pathogen, etc.-while reducing the fitness of the exploited individual-the pr
a mutualistic relationship between two species that is not required for the survival of the two species

a heterotrophic organism that kills and eats other organisms for food

a bush-shaped organ on an endomycorrhizal fungus that acts as a site of material exchange between the fungus and its host plant
cell growth in which all cell constituents, such as nitrogen, carbon, and DNA, increase at approximately the same rate.
