* In a ''very'' strange example of such a thing, is the relationship between a pitcher plant and an ant hill. Only matured pitchers will actually trap insects, but all pitchers (even just as tiny buds) produce the nectar that attract the ants. Once the ants have established the plant as a source of food, they will steadily feed from it while a comparably small number of ants will die in the plant. By effectively "sacrificing" members of the hive, it actually creates a mutual bond: the plant thrives from the nitrogen and phosphorus provided to it while the superorganism (hive as a whole) benefits greatly from the reliable source of food that will grow as their nest does.
