Emmett Duffy sings the praises of Dung Beetles in his latest post. He quotes Newsweek:
“If Earth’s species are a living library, then polar bears and other cuddly mammals are the best-selling beach reads. Everything else is the volumes of history and literature and other scholarship, written in the alphabet of DNA: 99 percent of all animals are invertebrates. To understand the history and the majesty of life requires reading, and thus preserving, those volumes.”Yeah for even more insignificance of those-with-spines!
