  20. Bond where an electron is shared between two atoms
    Covalent bond- typically between two non metals
  21. A bond where an electron moves completely from one atom to another
    Ionic bond- between atoms that have different characteristics like metal and non metals
  22. Made of a single cell or a complex combination of cells; exists in an open system and interacts constantly with each other and with their environment
    Organism
  23. Where one organism is harmed while the other benefits by the interaction
    Parasitic relationship
