Competition, coexistence, competition-colonization tradeoff, resource allocation, adaptation,
herbivore resistance
Competition two or more species require the same resources (food, water, shelter, space, etc.) to
survive they compete for them and the superior competitor can drive the other species
extinct or exclude it from an area
Coexistence Interaction of species living among each other, can do this through: competition,
resource partitioning, increased defenses against predators, and positive interactions
with other species.
Competition-
colonization
tradeoff
Resource
allocation
Reduces competition among the species and allows them to coexist
Roots of each species take up water and mineral ions from a different soil depth
Adaptation (textbook definition) a change within an organism or species which allows it to
become better suited to its environment.
Herbivore
resistance
Plants can develop physical or chemical defenses against herbivores
Species interactions (mutualism, commensalism, ammensalism, predation/parasitism, competition)
Feedback mechanisms, positive and negative, examples of each
