Symbiosis is a cornerstone of life itself - no organism, nor any species more widely, could survive in isolation and without reciprocity. This applies as much to human societies as to the rapport of those societies with their surrounding environments. More than a simple co-existence, symbiosis implies interdependence. It can be positive, neutral, or negative, varying according to the dynamic between the rapport's attendant parts. We must, then, choose our symbiotic models wisely.
