A Crab’s-Eye View of the Food Chain in Contemporary China
Human beings have viewed the Chinese mitten crab as either a culinary delicacy or an invasive species. But what if we looked at the world from the crab’s perspective? We would discover that the Chinese mitten crab has shrewdly placed our strategies to obtain food, build suitable habitats, and expand our range and numbers in the service of its own biological needs. We would also see it as the hero of its own story, engaged in a dance of creative agency, or a pattern of action and response, with members of our species.
