Invasive Plants and the Human Condition
Throughout the history of mankind, one behavioral trait seems to constantly resurface. Where does this urge of humanity to take over the space of others come from? Are we born with an urge to colonise? Are we taught the value of empires through our upbringing? Are we simply copying nature? Take a look at invasive plants, and you soon see that the recipe for survival is to keep on moving, keep on grabbing land, keep on imposing your genetic code on all around you. Nature shows the way, and we – the most intelligent species on earth – simply follow!
