Discussions Discussion Ecology I: The Earth System
Hannah U-USA, Nov. 26, 2011

I am learining about ecology right now in my science class. We have been learning about different ecosystems, weather, climates and many other things. One thing that my teacher said is that ecology is ECOlogical. There is a lot of information about ecology, but it is easy to understand. One of my favorite topics we learned about was animal relationships. One example that my teacher showed us in class is the ants and acacia trees in a symbiotic relationship. They help and protect each other here is a video about their relationship. Do you all have any other examples of animal realationships?

    Plovers and crocodiles have an interesting symbiotic relationship. The Plover is a bird that hunts for food from the crocodile's open mouth! The crocodile remains still while the plover picks meat from its mouth. This cleans the crocodile’s teeth and prevents infection while providing a somewhat scary meal for the hungry bird. I've posted an image about 5 posts above yours…hope you like it :)
