Re: Describe Your Relationship(s) in Symbiotic Terms
I figured. I was being facetious.
Synnecrosis is a rare type of symbiosis in which the interaction between species is detrimental to both organisms involved. It is a short-lived condition, as the interaction eventually causes death. Because of this, evolution selects against synnecrosis and it is uncommon in nature. The term is rarely used.
