Interdependence is where two or more organisms need each other or else they are not able to survive. Some organisms that rely on interdependence in the Savanna are:
Example: The Whistling acacia and herbivores:
Without these herbivores eating the Whistling acacia, ants would take over residence in the tree hollows, eventually killing the tree. These herbivores stop the tree from producing the nectar that the ants eat. So instead of making homes for these ants to reside in, the ants are more likely to produce homes for a different type of ant that does not defend the invasions of beetle larvae to build holes for homes. When they do this it stops the tree from growing which then causes it to die almost twice as fast than usual because it has nothing to protect itself from herbivores. The Whistling acacia trees are one of the only trees in its genus that does not rely on thorns or any type of chemical defence to protect itself.
