Sweet in tooth and claw

Ohlson, Kristin
"For centuries, people have debated whether nature is mostly competitive--as Darwin theorized and the poet Tennyson described as "red in tooth and claw"--or innately cooperative, as many ancient and indigenous peoples believed. In the last 100 or so years, a growing gang of scientists have studied the mutually beneficial interactions that are believed to benefit every species on earth. This book is full of stories of generosity--not competition--in nature. It is a testament to the importance of a healthy biodiversity, and dispels the widely accepted premise of survival of the fittest"--Provided by publisher.
