Puzzled. Mike, are you saying that there is scientific evidence that acorns 'planted' by jays and squirrels grow into the best trees, and is this because they select the biggest and best acorns?
Does this evidence record all acorns planted by the birds/animals, or only the ones that germinated and grew?
Do humans not 'select' the acorns that they plant?
Or have I misunderstood your point?
