So my youngest son and I were at the Missouri Botanical Garden yesterday for a school field trip where they talked about food chains. That’s where they talked about herbivores, carnivores, omnivores and detritivores. The last one I must admit I’d not heard before.
Unfortunately I came across an article today that talked about a recent study on herbivores and the news wasn’t good. The article is entitled “Which is most valuable: Gold, cocaine or rhino horn?” at UCLA Newsroom. If that’s not depressing enough, here’s a link to the actual study at Science magazine.
