Consequences[ edit ] Competition can have both beneficial and detrimental effects. Many evolutionary biologists view inter-species and intra-species competition as the driving force of adaptationand ultimately of evolution. Some social Darwinists claim that competition also serves as a mechanism for determining the best-suited group; politically, economically and ecologically. Positively, competition may serve as a form of recreation or a challenge provided that it is non-hostile.
Appropriately enough, my story Entanglement, is all about creeks and foraging and fishing and memories. Alex and Nick looking over The Lamb plans The journey here [Sandford, Devon, March ] was an epic in itself — sub-zero all the way, frozen screen-wash, rain, sleet and snow.

She reaches into her kete and passes you a brand new, hand-line. All yours, your prize for being grown-up-enough. She warns you about entanglement, then shows you how to double-thread a chunk of the stinking, slimy liver onto your hook.
