2D). Effects of M I on M2 are not mediated through NE. The M2 consumes a food resource produced by M 1 . Thus, populations interact directly, but the outcome of this i nteraction for M 1 depends upon the service M2 provides by modifying the interaction between NE and M 1 . This example is similar to plant-mycorrhizal i nteractions, in which the mutualism arises in part through an extrinsic resource, R, rather than a natural enemy, provided to plants by fungi, but fungi directly consume photosynthates.
