"Conservation of biodiversity means more than protecting the world's species for their own sake--there are also enormous economic impacts at play...Bizarre and fascinating examples of industrial or commercial uses of the humblest of organisms keep the book moving and appealing to all levels of readers (e.g., did you know that one quarter of the world's copper production is courtesy of bacterial action?) The discussions of the potential and existing uses of various organisms for medical purposes provide examples not normally mentioned in conservationist arguments." (CHOICE magazine review.)
