Last week I came across a sentence somewhere that used the word teaming. It's a nice word, if you're talking about teaming up, but the writer meant to convey abundance, not people banding together for a cooperative enterprise. The right word, therefore, would be teeming, as in abounding or swarming.
It's so important for writers to find and use the correct word, because people like me will find the errors and maybe think the less of their efforts and writing prowess. Don't be that writer!
