Biodiversity underpins ecosystem services. Bees can’tpollinate, nor can trees store carbon, i they have all died.… Diverse systems are better at capturing carbon, storingwater and preserving fsheries. Just how diverse anecosystem has to be in order to supply the goods andservices needed by man is a matter o debate - a debatemade harder by the act that many species may have usesthat man has not yet ound.”
The Economist, 2008
