This type of symbiosis is commensalism. Commensalism is a relationship between two organisms in which one benefits from the other and the other organism is not affected in any way. From the question above, in the relationship, microscopic mites are the commensals as they benefit from their host; humans and humans neither benefit nor are harmed.

What is Tree?

A tree is a commonly used abstract data type in computer science that depicts a hierarchical tree structure with a set of connected nodes.

Except for the root node, which has no parent, each node in the tree must be connected to exactly one parent but may connect to multiple children (depending on the type of tree).

Recursion is a helpful strategy for tree traversal because these restrictions mean that there are no cycles or "loops" (no node can be its own ancestor) and that each child can be viewed as the root node of its own subtree.

Therefore, Fruit, Flower and Seeds, Spores and Vascular Tissues  are fern have in common with an apple tree.

MMR is the abbreviation for measles, mumps, and rubella. The vaccination of MMR is one of the routine vaccination in children.
Question
He peppered moth provides a well-known example of natural selection. the light-colored form of the moth was predominant in england before the industrial revolution. in the mid-nineteenth century, a dark-colored form appeared. the difference is produced by a dominant allele of one gene. by about 1900, approximately 90% of the moths around industrial areas were dark colored, whereas light-colored moths were still abundant elsewhere. apparently, birds could readily find the light moths against the soot-darkened backgroun
Solution 1

A. Dark moths had a survival disadvantage in industrial Dorset.

Solution 2
The reason for the loss of color after the industrial revolution is that the light-colored moths were "selected against" by predators. These birds could only see the light ones against the newly dark, sooted background. Over time, these predators could no longer distinguish the dark ones from their natural dark, sooted background. Thus more light-colored moths stood out against the dark soot, and were eaten. And more dark-colored moths eluded the birds, survived to reproduce, passing on more of their dominant genes for dark color to their offspring. After several decades of hundreds of thousands of generations, most of the later generations were dark, due to selective advantage of camouflage to survive predation.
Question
Name for the narrow opening between the uterus and the vagina
Solution 1

The answer is cervix. It is cylindrical in shape and found at the base of the uterus and where the vagina begins. It is 2 – 3 cm long. The cervix enlargens during pregnancy to allow the passage of the fetus during childbirth. It is also a conduit for sperm from the vagina to the uterus as they swim upstream to fertilize the egg.

Solution 1
Zia used hypothetico-deductive reasoning. 

The Hypothetico-Deductive method is a scientific model of reaserch. You make a hypothesis of what the problem is - keep in mind that, according to Einstein's thoughts, these hypothesis cannot be 100% verified, they can only be proven wrong - and once you have that, do deduce what the consequences might be. 
Question
In august 2010, the asian clam was discovered in lake george. it is not native to that area. a single clam can reproduce and release hundreds of offspring in a day. fish and crayfish eat the clams but cannot keep pace with the rate at which the clams reproduce. the introduction of the asian clam into lake george is ______ .
Solution 1
The introduction of the Asian Clam in Lake George is an example of an Invasive Species.

Asian Clam are small in size, hardly 1.5 inches long. However, they can reproduce very quickly without the need for a partner. A single clam can give birth to hundreds of offspring in a single day without a mate.

Asian Clam is extremely unpleasant for most fresh water bodies since it excretes nutrients such as nitrogen.

This helps in the development of algae and gives off a foul stink.
