THE SURVIVAL OF ANIMALS
How the Various Speciea Manage to
1 Escape Extermination by Nat
i ural Enemies.
How Is the balance of life on tha
globe maintained? Why have not spa
des exterminated species? Why have
not the birds exterminated the Insects,
and the hawks and owls exterminated
the birds?- Because the Insects are so
much more prolific than the hawks and
owls. The hawks and owls are also
more restricted as to food. The more
adaptive an animal Is the greater are
the chances of surviving, writes John
Burroughs, in Outing. If wolves and
foxes could browse like deer and sheep
and rabbits, they would ba as numerous
as these latter specie.
The potato bug has unduly Increased
In the cast because its food la abundant
and its enemies have noi appeared. Tha
forest worms threatened to destroy the
maple woods of aome sections till lta
enemy, the Ichneumon fly, appeared.
Rabbits have Increased unduly In Aus
tralia because their natural enemlea
have not kept pace.
