Cultivate, evolved example
Leaf-cutter ants and the fungus they cultivate, evolved in close association and formed a symbiotic relationship whereby both species benefit (mutualism). The fungus is sheltered, fed, protected, and dispersed by the ants, and the ants are rewarded with bits of food. Neither ant nor fungus can survive without the other. Leaf-cutter ants are the dominant herbivores in tropical regions and literally shape the plant communities around them. They are an integral part of the ecosystem.
