Millions of years ago leaves became flowers, wasps became bees, and moths became butterfly, all in an astonishingly short period of time. Our world has never been the same since. The development of fruit and seed added a whole new dimension to the food chain, and kick started an evolutionary frenzy. We quite literally owe our existence to that frenzy.

In less than a century we humans have managed to unravel that web of life. With pesticides, herbicides, and habitat destruction. We can reverse our course, but we must do it now.
