Entomologist Terry Erwin studies insect diversity in the rain forest canopy of the neo-tropics. Terry discovers between 1,500-2,000 species of insects in each tree he examines. Eighty percent of what he finds in a single tree is new to science.

Agreed. I wish we all could live in harmony like the trees.

I agree. I remember where we lived when I was a little kid, there was one half on our property and half on the neighbors.. and the neighbors took it upon themselves to cut it down.

I was devastated.

Sadly I really don't care if we kill a bug or two. *gasp, coming from all my biol. educated brain* I know it's wrong and how it would affect us, but i just think less bugs would be ok.

I'm with you about bugs being bad... but they don't bother me so much when they're no species in the Amazon Rainforest and could help cure diseases and such.

I figure bugs can stay in the Amazon. I'm not going on a road trip there any time soon. ;)

I NEVER want to be trapped in one of those trees. Other than that, let's experiment on the buggies and start curing cancer and AIDS

Agreed. *nod* Supposedly there's no disease that can't be cured by something in nature.
