    Mutalism: http://openstudy.com/groups/biology#/groups/biology/updates/4e5e1bb90b8b1f45b497f256 -the bacteria get carbon from the plant (food) and the plant gets nitrogen. Commensalism: cattle egrets foraging in fields among cattle or other livestock. As cattle, horses and other livestock graze on the field, they cause movements that stir up various insects. As the insects are stirred up, the cattle egrets following the livestock catch and feed upon them. The egrets benefit from this relationship because the livestock have helped them find their meals, while the livestock are typically unaffected by it. (Copied from wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commensalism) And Parasitism is where one party gains and the other is negatively effected. One example is a tapeworm that lives in your gut.
