Symbiosis is close and often long-term interaction between two different biological species. An endosymbiotic relationship is where one of the species lives inside the cells of the other species. Mitochondria and chloroplasts are most likely the result of an endosymbiotic relationship.

Mutualism
Mutualism

Mutualism or interspecific cooperation is the way two organisms of different species exist in a relationship in which each individual benefits from the activity of the other. Similar interactions within a species are known as co-operation. Mutualism can be contrasted with interspecific competition, in which each species experiences reduced fitness, and exploitation, or parasitism, in which one ...

Parasitism
Parasitism

Parasitism differs from parasitoidism, a relationship in which the parasite always kills the host. Parasitoidism occurs in some Hymenoptera (ants, wasps, and bees), Diptera , and a few Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths): the female lays her eggs in or on the host, upon which the larvae feed on hatching.

Symbiotic relationships can be obligate or facultative. Obligate symbiosis is when two organisms are in a symbiotic relationship because they can't survive without each other. Facultative symbiosis is when the species live together by choice. There are four main types of symbiotic relationships: mutualism, commensalism, parasitism and competition.
