Relationships of Plants and Animals

  • Marius Jacobs


Under normal circumstances, a botanist does not encounter many animals. His interest is focussed on other things and his activities are generally diurnal. Yet he naturally meets the many signs of animal activity: termite mounds, nests, tracks, dung, the opened shells of hard fruits and other traces of animal feeding. If he moves about cautiously, he need have no fear of snakes. Mosquitoes and leeches are merely familiar inconveniences, though approaching too close to a wasp nest is an ever-present occupational hazard.
