    The article neglects to mention that the reason Puccinia graminis was such a concern is that it caused epidemics of wheat rust and was thus a significant threat to agriculture.

    Leo Shapiro commented on an older version of Brief Summary:

    I wonder whether it is true that there are more species of Lepidoptera than Diptera or Hymenoptera. Given the large numbers of undescribed species in each of these groups, it's hard to know, but is this even true considering only described species? Seems plausible, but I wonder whether anyone has made a recent tabulation (I see in E.O. Wilson's 1992 book Dversity of Life, on p. 136 he gives the relevant numbers as: Lepidoptera 112,000; Hymenoptera 103,000; Diptera 98,500)

    Leo Shapiro commented on "Distribution":

    Why is the listed distribution just 3 islands when the actual (and mapped) distribution is so much broader?

    Misleading because it implies that Taxus is limited to Honduras.
