In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- In that way the clownfish gets protection and attracts prey for the anemone, an example of symbiosis, or co-operation between different animals.
- Independent dispersal of algal and fungal cultures therefore can lead to a successful establishment of the lichen symbiosis even under harsh Antarctic conditions.
- An ancient, pure relative of these related symbioses of bacteria and yeasts is the tea-fungus called Kombucha.
- The investigation of early events and molecules involved in fungal - plant interactions are crucial for a better understanding of symbiosis.
- The products of many symbioses, and the effects of symbiosis on plant, animal and human hosts are of ecological, agricultural and medical importance.
- These associations therefore represent a valuable source for our general understanding of the dynamics and evolution of symbiosis.
- Yet decades of efforts at bioengineering to extend the legume symbiosis to the roots of other crops have not yet shown promise. It is certainly no single-gene affair.
- The Gogo reef was a different kind of reef, no symbiosis between polyp and algae, more a community of sponges and sea mosses that formed hard skeletons.
- In this NYT book review he discusses symbiosis in evolution, an oft neglected part of the whole evolutionary story.
- A remarkable part of this exquisite symbiosis is the way the squid keeps the bacterial culture fresh within its light organ.
- Unlike most other corals, they have no algae living in symbiosis with them, so they must absorb nutrients that pass on the current.
- The significance of symbiosis is now recognized for its abundance, wide distribution, and fundamental importance in many ecological processes.
- We see how plants and animals live together in symbiosis; as we breathe out carbon dioxide the plants take it and give us back oxygen.
- The classical examples of symbiosis are the lichens, in which a fungus is associated with an alga or a cyanobacterium.
- It was this symbiosis between large herbivores and micro-organisms that sustained biological decay as well as adequate disturbance on a periodic basis.
- A less common example of symbiosis occurs when a hermit crab lives on another species.
- The reason for this is that the rich soil (lots of varieties of microorganisms) as well as the rest of the ecosystem has evolved a fairly balanced symbiosis.
- Although many of these symbioses are assumed to represent coevolved, mutually beneficial interactions, the ecological and evolutionary nature of many symbioses remain to be explored experimentally.
- The establishment of symbiosis is the result of a complex series of interactions between the symbiont and the host plant.
- Do parasitic and mutualistic symbioses differ in patterns of coevolution?
English has borrowed many of the following foreign expressions of parting, so you’ve probably encountered some of these ways to say goodbye in other languages.
Many words formed by the addition of the suffix –ster are now obsolete - which ones are due a resurgence?
As their breed names often attest, dogs are a truly international bunch. Let’s take a look at 12 different dog breed names and their backstories.
