wikipedia wrote:The term allelopathy denotes the production of specific biomolecules by one plant that can induce suffering in, or give benefit to, another plant. However, it is most commonly used in the former sense - an interaction in which one plant causes suffering to another plant.


thefreedictionnary.com wrote: antibiosis - an association between organisms that is harmful to one of them or between organisms and a metabolic product of another
association - (ecology) a group of organisms (plants and animals) that live together in a certain geographical region and constitute a community with a few dominant species.


The definition speaks for themselves, no? And it does not take too much time.

disagree. i dont want the definition from any dictionaries,i can do this too.

in my opionion:allelopathy is more restricted to plants, it describes the interactions between plants.

however, antibiosis is more restricted to marine animals.(however bacteria and fungi is not an animal)

any differences can be found?(in ur own words)

cheers
