neutral: neither species directly affect the other species, commensalism: one species benefits and the other one is not affected, mutualism: both benefit, competition: both are harmed by interaction, parasitism: where on species benefits and the other is harmed.

Also there is amensalism where one is harmed and the other is not affected and then of course predation where one benefits and the other is harmed and finally antagonism/competition where both species are harmed.

here's a simple one:

describe in detail how the most common type of hydropower works, and also describe the benefits of using it (you don't need to go into detail on that one.)

Will endangered species included?
Will there be any formulas that need to be learned?

First you should read this. Then you should post your questions here.

To answer Jake R's question:
Most common form of hydropower comes with dams. Dams function by altering the flow of water from a source; the buildup, or reservoir, creates a powerful flow/intake that can then turn a turbine, and thus power a generator. 

Benefits: dams are relatively cheap, are renewable year-round as long as the reservoir is full, and can reduce downstream flooding.

I'm just going to go ahead and ask a question...
1. Edge effects are the result of what?
2. What is habitat fragmentation?

1) Edge effects are the result of different conditions on either side of the boundary (I think...) 
2) Habitat fragmentation is when some sort of boundary divides habitats into smaller pieces that divide populations and drastically change the ecosystem. Habitat fragmentation is often caused by humans, when they build roads or clear land for farms.

To be more specific, Edge effects are changes in population or community structures (usually an increase) at the boundary of 2 habitat fragments. Otherwise, good. :)
