Biosphere
Gaia's Daisyworld concept. An imaginary world completely covered with the seeds of two types of flowers, white and black. The black flowers are better at absorbing light from the sun; the white flowers are better at reflecting light. In cooler conditions, the black flowers proliferate, and because they retain heat they eventually warm up the environment to a point where the ability to reflect heat becomes advantageous, allowing the white flowers to proliferate.
