Mutualism is described by what is known as a symbiotic relationship between two organisms. When two organism relay on each other for their survival or better adaption, they develop a mutualistic relationship. In which both of the organisms benefit from the exchange of services that are being provided. This is very different from a parasitic relationship, which is when only one organism benefits from a relationship. The picture above is of a flower; this is perhaps one of the most common mutualistic organism. A bee transports the pollen of plants from flower to flower. The plant is benefited because its gymnosperm is spreading and the bee finds the pollen it needs to bring back to the hive.
