    symbiosis-
    symbiosis is the relationship between two species of animals who live in the same environment together.
    symbiosis can be when an organisms lives together with another organism and they help each other survive.
    another type of symbiosis is when a parasite live with a host and harms the host but it helps the parasite.
    the last type of symbiosis is when two organisms live together in the same environment and one helps the other while the other does not get the negative or the positive effects.

    Instinct-
    instinct or innate behavior is something that all animals are born with and it is when the respond to stimuli without thinking about it.
    examples of clearly instinctive behaviors include many reflexes. A true instinct is distinguished from other behaviors by mechanism; they do not go through the brain.

    Bioaccumulation-
    Bioaccumulation refers to the accumulation of substances, such as pesticides, or other organic chemicals in an organism. Bioaccumulation occurs when an organism absorbs a toxic substance at a rate greater than that at which the substance is lost. Thus, the longer the biological half-life of the substance the greater the risk of chronic poisoning, even if environmental levels of the toxin are not very high. when a dangerous substance finds its way into the environment and it finds a body of water then the water is contaminated and all of the fish swimming and living in that water also become contaminated. then other animals eat the fish including us humans and we also eat those other animals. So the more toxins we are putting in the environment the more it builds up in the food web and the more organisms become contaminated.

    behavior-
    behavior is the way that animals act and respond to stimuli, and behavior can either be innate or learned. innate behavior is the instinct that animals are born with and do without thinking about it. learned behavior is just as its stated, it is learned.
    Some examples of learned behavior is walking, and forms of communication. Also for some animals flying is a learned behavior.
    Examples of innate behavior are reflex, it is the simplest innate behavior and there is no conscience control over it.

    carrying capacity-
    carrying capacity is how much of a population a given space can hold. when there is limited space for a population many other things like disease can affect it. When there is a limited space for a population then competition for recources also can occur causing the population to drop but when there is a large carrying capacity then all of the animals can gather food faster and reproduce faster so that the population can survive.

    density independent factors-
    Density independent factors are factors that affect a population regardless of the size of the population.
    one example of a density independent factor is any kind of weather, because the population does not affect the weather and for example if a hurricane hits a large city with a million people in it and it also hits a city with a population of only one thousand people there it will kill alot of people.
