PARASITISM



WHAT IS PARASITISM>/h1>
Definition of parasitism
Parasitism is a feeding relationship or association between two organisms, in which the parasite live in or on the body of the host, deriving benefit from and causes harm to it while the host loses in the process
In other words, parasitism is a close association between two organisms in which one, known as the PARASITE, lives on or in and feeds on the expense of the other known as the HOST. The parasite benefits from the association while the host suffers

Typical examples of parasitism are

1.

MAN AND THE TAPEWORM

The tape worm is a parasite that lives in the small intestine of man, where it derives the benefits of a habitat, protection and food. The man who s the host suffers because he loses to the tape worm parts of the food he has eaten and digested
2.

MISTLETOE AND FLOWERING PLAN

The mistletoe is a plant parasite that lives on other larger flowering plants. The mistletoe benefits because the host gives its support and raises it to a position from which it can receive sunlight. The parasite also derives water and mineral salts from the host while the host suffers harm by losing to the parasite part of the water and mineral salts that it has absorbed








FUNGAL PARASITES OF HOST PLANTS INCLUDE

1. Ustilago on maize
2. Puccinia on maize, wheat or barley
3. Phytophthora palmivora on cocoa
4. Phytophthora infestans on tomato/potato
5. Alternario on tomato
