Talking Caterpillars: conditional outcomes
The interaction grid on the previous page makes everything look neat and tidy and logical. But the outcome of an interaction can be different at different times and places.
The new paradigm for these interactions shows potentially changing positions on a continuously varying scale:
The location of a particular interaction can slide up and down the continuum,
depending on the circumstances operating at a particular place and time.
Thus, the outcome of the interaction is conditional
on current ecological conditions.
