Interspecific interactions of 2 species of any area may be beneficial, detrimental or neutral. Explain each of them with the help of examples.

Dear student,
Please find below the answer:

Interaction between two species in a population can have different results depending on the species involved.

Symbiosis or mutualism: Example of beneficial interspecific relationship where one or both the species mutually benefit each other. For example Algae and fungi species in a lichen.
Detrimental: Here one species benefits at the expense of the other. For example, Predation where an organism of one species eats the organism of other species.
Neutral: Neutralism where two species interact with absolutely no impact on each other. For example, some species of Lactobacillus and Streptococcus can coexist without affecting each other in any way.

Hope this clears your doubt.
