Definition of Symbiosis:

  1. Close association or relationship between two or more living organisms, where at least one receives some sort of benefit from the relationship. Common examples in the animal kingdom include certain species of birds who eat parasites or bugs off the skin of elephants, and a bee which eats the nectar of flowers and in turn spreads the pollen which allows the flower to reproduce.

  2. Interaction between two different organisms living in close physical association, typically to the advantage of both.
