Description: The first rule of intelligent tinkering, Aldo Leopold famously noted, is to keep all the wheels and cogs. Rodney Honeycutt, David Hillis, and John Bickham take the analogy a step further: Not only are conservation biologists like car mechanics trying to keep an engine running, but they are aware of the existence—let alone the function—of only a small percentage of the engine components. ‘‘The other 90% of the parts are falling off the engine faster than they can be discovered,’’ they write, ‘‘and it is unclear how much longer the car will keep running.’’
