Cannibalism in Nature

So I had a thought last night…

Let’s say I grow some strawberries. Then I wash them and eat them. Of course I choose not to eat the leaves so I compost them. I wait until the compost is ready to be used a fertilizer and then I spread it back on the strawberry plant.

In a way the strawberry plant is eating old strawberry remains…

So nature promotes cannibalism? O.o
