Speciation

11/06/2009

The natural world is amazing. We need to start looking at diversity in nature in a new way.  When we have good enough science to watch this process happen, it removes any facade of stability.  Flora and Fauna are ever changing, and while humanity is certainly a cog in the machine, We’re probably not as important as we think we are. What’s really happening here? We keep much fretted-over lists of species which are dying out for various reasons, and while I think we could probably point to a few species that given a second chance would flourish, many are dying because their mode of living is outdated.  If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that nature is better at keeping balance than we are. So what am I saying?  Extinction was an established trend long before we arrived.
