an organism that can only exist, grow and evolve under the nurturing care of its host, who donate vital nutrients and provide support for its continual development. In a mutualistic relationship, the parasite co-evolves with its host, in a symbiosis where both parties thrive and flourish through exchange and association.
ORIGIN mid 16th cent.: via Latin from Greek parasitos ‘(person) eating at another’s table,’ from para- ‘alongside’ + sitos ‘food.’
