Among those strategies, it is worth mentioning the escape mechanism (Wasson & Lyon, 2005) and the commensally
interaction between post-planktonic stages and gastropod Crucibulum spinosum (Sowerby, 1824), reducing the risk of desiccation at low tides and minimizing the pressure by predation during high tides (Campos-Gonzales & Macias-Chavez, 1987).
Mus are generally considered both territorial and colonial when living commensally
The parasitic interactions between phorids and ants have thus been relatively well studied (Feener & Brown 1997; Brown 1999), but less is known about the evolution of their association and the behavior of phorids living commensally
within ant nests, especially concerning nonparasitic interactions between these two groups (Holldobler & Wilson 1990).
However, when living commensally
with humans (i.e., in their dwellings with abundant food), they will reproduce throughout the year.
This fish lives free and commensally
with infaunal invertebrates (MacGinitie and MacGinitie 1949).
In Theravada Buddhism and Buddhism Transformed Gombrich and Obeyesekere enable us to see that "spirit religion" and Gotama Buddha's recipe for individual salvation function commensally
in a single organic relationship.
It may well be that the natural history of foreign organisms is first to cause pathology, then to be a nonfatal parasite, and then to live commensally
and perhaps even interdependently.
