There is no recipe for living that suits all cases - Carl Jung

Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kiss the ground - Rumi

Cary Fowler: "We can't solve any of the world's problems without crop diversity." Don't endow a museum in NY, endow wheat in Svalbard. -- bupbin (from TED2009, Oxford)

Quote 2321

Biodiversity underpins ecosystem services. Bees can't pollinate, nor can trees store carbon, if they have all died. Diverse systems are better at capturing carbon, storing water and preserving fisheries. Just how diverse an ecosystem has to be in order to supply the goods and services needed by man is a matter of debate - a debate made harder by the fact that many species may have uses that man has not yet found - The Economist, 2008
