Thus predation is often, though not always, carnivory.

Other categories of consumption are herbivory (eating parts of plants), fungivory (eating parts of fungi), and detritivory (the consumption of dead organic material). For example, some parasites prey on their host and then lay their eggs on it, for their offspring to feed on it while it continues to live, or on its decaying corpse after it has died.

The key characteristic of predation is the predator's direct impact on the prey population.

Selective pressures (coevolution) imposed on one another often leads to an evolutionary arms race between prey and predator, resulting in various antipredator adaptations.
