Species Interactions

The interactions I observed were all on oaks, consisting of (I think) all commensal or parasitic interactions with mistletoe, galls, and lichen.

I also included my observations of the ground squirrels and the turkey vultures, because when I approached the ground squirrel they all ran into their burrows, but one would pop its head out and then vocalize to the rest. The vultures were all perching together in a pine tree.
I wasn't sure if we were supposed to include intraspecific interactions.
