About the course
Take a close look at the most violent relationship between two species in an ecosystem: predatory relationships. Classify the three subcategories of predation: true predation, grazing, and parasitism, identifying useful examples for each category.
It's a competitive place out there! Follow Payton in determining the relationships of predators and prey, and everything in between.
