Gains in computing power and biological insight are converging, giving us the opportunity to learn our own genetic code. While this new era offers untold opportunities for better health, longer lives, and richer human understanding, it will also present some weighty challenges. Of the over one million species of plants and animals on this planet, only a few - such as crops, timber, and edible fish - have market values.

These natural processes can be seen as "services" provided by our ecosystems.
