Commensalism

Miramar-Pembroke Pines-20130824-00094

The flowers growing on the tree above are exemplifying commensalism. Commensalism is a relationship between to organisms in which one benefits and the other is unaffected/unharmed. The flowers in the photo above are using the tree as housing and branching off of it unlike many flowers that grow on their own. While in this relationship the tree is unaffected, the flowers are benefitting.
