Examples of parasitism?

Answer

Parasitism is a relationship between two organisms that are different species; in this relationship, one is the parasite and one is the host. The parasite benefits at the expense of the host. There are many examples of parasitism in nature. One example is worms in humans, such as whipworms or hookworms. These parasites cause symptoms in the human host and do not benefit the host in any way. Another parasite is a protozoan of the genus Plasmodium, which causes malaria in humans and other mammals; Plasmodium uses a third animal, or a vector, to transmit malaria (it is commonly known that the vector is a mosquito).
