    • 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?
