Summary Introduction

Introduction:  Predators are hunting animals that capture and kill their prey.  The type of interspecific interactions in which a species (predator) feeds on the other species (prey) for the former’s survival is called predation. For example, a lion eating a rabbit; in this type of interaction, one species gets benefitted while the other one is harmed. Both predators and prey exert some kind of selection pressure on each other. The prey species will possess some defensive adaptation to protect themselves from the predators.

Explanation

For example, both bees and wasps possess similar patterns of stripes that are evolved as a part of warning coloration. The similarities shown by the species can be in terms of their smell, behavior, appearance, and sound. Mimicry can be classified into mainly two types- Müllerian mimicry and Batesian mimicry...
