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. When the two species have a close association with each other and which in turn benefits at least any one of them, this is called symbiosis.
