One of the most common examples of mutualism is the mutualistic relationship between an oxpecker and a zebra. Zebras are benefiting from this relationship because oxpeckers are helping them by killing different kinds of parasites that live in the skin of zebras.

.Oxpeckers are also benefiting from this relationship because they feed on the parasites that live on the skin of zebras. Another benefit that zebras are deriving from this relationship is that when there is danger, zebras are informed by the continuous sound oxpeckers make.

Another example is the mutualistic relationship between the bees and the flower. When bees fly to suck the nectar of a flowering plant, they help pollinate other flowering plants. Mutualism is a type of relationship between two different species

There are different types of relationships that exist in nature and one of them is the mutualism. In this type of relationship, there are two organisms or species that are interacting with each other and are benefiting from their interaction. One example of this is the bee and the flower.

The bee will fly from one flower to another so that it can get nectar. The nectar will be made into food so that bees will be able to survive. At the same time, the bees can help in scattering the seeds from the flowers which can allow different flowers to grow.

Another example of mutualism is the bacteria and the human. There are certain types of good bacteria that can be found in the human body that can help people digest food. At the same time, bacteria will be getting the food that they need to survive.

Mutualism is when two different species maintain a relationship that serves them both equally, and these relationships can be mutually beneficial and non-symbiotic. The association is symbiotic when the two involved organisms are incredibly close. The relationship is also considered to be symbiotic if at least one of the two organisms need the other, and without that contact, they would die.

Two examples of mutualism include the bees and the blossoms. The bees rush from flower to flower in pursuit of nectar, which they convert into food, and it benefits them. When bees are placed on a flower, particles of pollen stick to their body, such as particles moved to other flowers, and the outcome is plant pollination—the crab spider and algae.

Spider crabs devote much of their lives in places where the water is shallow, which creates more possibility that predators see them. However, on the back of the crabs, a specific type of algae acts as a camouflage for the animal. The plant also benefits because it discovers a nice place to live. Mutualism plays a significant role in ecology and evolution.
