Context: The popular view of biodiversity has often been confined to attractive organisms, such as higher animals and flowering plants. Less conspicuous taxa, such as invertebrates, far outnumber these groups. They also make up most of the biomass, and their ecological roles are crucially important, for example through nutrient cycling, pollination, removal of dead and waste organic matter, and as a food source for higher animals.
