My Year of Darwin 10/5/2014: Natural selection does a lot but not this

 Charles Darwin

"What natural selection cannot do, is to modify the structure of one species, without giving it any advantage, for the good of another species." Charles Darwin, Origin of Species 1st edition (on Kindle)

In other words species change for their own good. However, species can maximize their fitness by working together with other organisms. Mutualism is my favorite biological interaction - it's a win-win for both.
