“I must say, however, that you have beaten us hands down on visualising biodiversity.  The image you sent Clinton is just wonderful.  Yes, it’s artistically compelling, but what matters most to us is how rich it is scientifically.  There’s a lot of information here that will combine to drive scientific study and exploration.  Every museum show have sets of these maps on their walls!”
