A snake lives in a bird’s nest where it does not harm the nestlings but helps them survive. A fly, perched on a twig like an eagle on a branch, intercepts a moth and replaces an act of pollination with an act of anti-pollination. An orchid blooms today because ten years ago a fungus found its seed. Ants tending livestock and clams stuck to fishes’ gills; squirrels replenishing forests and birds planting new groves within existing forests; beetles carrying passengers as if they were buses; herons stocking snails in vernal pools: each of these is but a peep-hole glimpse at wildlife interactions.

In "Twelve Great Connections" we will open the door to get a deeper, more detailed look at how magnificently life connects with life.
