Scientists have been obsessed with competition and the survival of the fittest ever since Charles Darwin posited the theory of natural selection. In a lot of ways, our innate competitive instincts influence how we view each other and manage the natural world around us. We tend to favor those individuals who are big and strong and best positioned to win. We do this in forestry, in agriculture, and in fisheries. And yet the way people behave and thrive depends on a community. It’s no different in the forest. The cooperation that goes on between trees and plants is just as important as the competition, which allows them to work together to adjust to changes and threats in their environment.
