WHAT IS SYMBIOTIC NUTRITION?


SYMBIOTIC NUTRITION

What is symbiotic nutrition?
Symbiotic nutrition is a type of nutrition in which two organisms of different species called SYMBIONTS live together and derive nutrients or food from each other.
In symbiotic nutrition, both organisms gain from such association and none is harmed. This type of nutrition called symbiotic nutrition while the association between the two organisms in which both derive benefits is called SYMBIOSIS






Apart from the nutritional benefits, the symbionts can derive other benefits like protection, reproduction shelter during such association.

Examples of organisms that exhibits symbiotic nutrition are
1. Nitrogen fixation bacteria and root nodules of leguminous plants
2. Algae and Fungi in a lichen
3. Sea anemones and hermit crabs
4. Termites and protozoa living together in the gut


1. NITROGEN FIXATION BACTERIA AND ROOT NODULES OF LEGUMINOUS PLANTS: a typical example of symbiotic nutrition and association is the one between nitrogen fixing bacteria, Rhizobium spp and the root nodules of leguminous plants.
The bacteria is able to fix atmospheric nitrogen directly into the plant while the plant provide shelter and food for the bacteria.


ALGAE AND FUNGI IN LICHEN: a LICHEN is usually made up of two organisms, a fungus and a unicellular Alga, living closely together and this an example of symbiotic nutrition. The thallus or plant body of a lichen consists mostly of fungal hyphae, with alga cells embedded in them. The alga cells are arranged in a definite layer. The green alga manufactures food for both plants, while the fungus protects the alga and absorbs water from the surroundings thereby making the symbiotic nutrition process complete.

3. SEA ANEMONES AND CRABS: in this type of symbiotic nutrition, the sea anemone is known to attach itself to the empty shell in which the hermit crab is found. Pieces of food left by the hermit crab is what the sea anemone eats. The hermit is protected from predators that would have attacked or eaten it as the sting of the sea anemone keep them away from the hermit crab
