______ steal parental care.

  1. a. Mutualists
  2. b. Commensalists
  3. c. Brood parasites
  4. d. Predators

Summary Introduction

Introduction: The interactions among members of the different species are called interspecific interactions. These interactions include predation, interspecific competition, herbivory, facilitation and symbiosis (mutualism, parasitism, and commensalism). Many of the interspecific interactions can affect the survival and reproduction of the species that engage in them. The type of interspecific interactions in which the parasite gets benefited by feeding on their host which is harmed is called parasitism. The types of parasitism include endoparasitism, ectoparasitism, and brood parasitism.

Explanation

Reason for correct answer:

The type of parasitism in which the birds lay eggs in the nest of other species, so that the young ones receive parental care is called brood parasitism. For example, cuckoos lay eggs in the nest of crows. The crows then take care of these eggs, as if they belong to their own family and protect them from predators. By this way, the brood parasite steals the parental care.

Option c. is given as “Brood parasites”.

The type of parasitism in which the birds lay eggs in the nest of other species, so that the young ones receive parental care is called brood parasitism.

Hence, the correct answer is option c.

Reasons for incorrect answers:

Option a. is given as “Mutualists”.

The type of interspecific interactions in which both the species are benefitted is called mutualism...
