DailyDirt: Discovering More Life On Earth

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

While some environmentalists complain about the rate at which known species are dying, the absolute amount of biodiversity on Earth is actually not well known. There could be 100 million different species, but we've only identified about 2 million so far. Here are just a few recent developments that could help expand our databases of living species. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    The Dead Sea is awesome. The water is deadly to drink, but things still live in it. It is like an alien world right here on earth

    FYI, I skip the DailyDirt articles because they do not bear on the subject at hand. Yawn.

      Tim,

      Thanks for the feedback. Is there a particular theme you are interested in?

      We're just trying to give people a break from the copyright/trademark/patent/policy posts.
