Species Interactions And Ants


This article will introduce the major types of interactions that occur between species in nature, called parasitismcompetition, and mutualism, and provides real-life examples from the fascinating world of ants. Beautiful artwork and a glossary.

This article is from Frontiers for Young Minds, a project of the Frontiers research journal. It asks scientists to re-write their research papers at a middle school level — and then has middle and high school students serve as the editors! We recommend these articles as good, grade-appropriate sources of information for students.
