Plants Depend on Animals

From My Class Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Plants depend on animals for survival. An example is algae and coral. The coral gives carbon dioxide to the algae, and the algae use the carbon dioxide to make oxygen and food. The oxygen that the algae made helps the coral to live.

Another example is a clownfish and a sea anemone. Normally for any kind of fish, the sea anemone will poison them, except a clownfish. The sea anemone is protected by the clownfish, and the clownfish is protected from predators by the sea anemone’s poisonous stings. As you can see, plants depend on animals for survival.
