The thing I'm curious about is why is this just becoming news now? This is clearly the way all things work in the world. The big bulky systems that we can see, (i.e. humans, forests, the earth!!) are sustained, cultivated and protected by the tiny things that we don't usually see, (i.e. insects and bacteria).  continue reading... »
