Mutualism

Mutualism

Mutualism is the term for symbiotic relationships between two organisms in which they each benefit equally. For example, flowers like this rose show mutualism in their relationships with their pollinators. The flower gets pollinated and the pollinator gets nutrients from the flower’s nectar.
