Abstract

Endosymbiotic relationships play an important role in the origin and evolution series of endosymbiotic events. Endosymbiosis between hydra and Chlorella represents a long-term mutualistic relationship in which both organisms benefit from each other. On the other hand, Elysia and Ambystoma are examples of the unusual symbioses, waiting yet to be fully understood. Associations with photosynthetic organisms provide an advatange to a host because it can survive in conditions without food. It is possible that these relationships exist in more organisms then that were observed so far. Further research is needed to provide the answers and give insight into the biodiversity that is shaped by symbiotic relationships.
