Commensalism

Commensalism

Commensalism is a type of relationship between two organisms in which one organism benefits without affecting the other organism. In this picture, the plants are attached to other, bigger, plants and trees. In this relationship, the plants can receive proper sunlight for photosynthesis, and, as long as they don’t get to heavy for the trees that they are on, they don’t affect the tree. This constitutes commensalism.
