Smaller Animals

 Here scientists predict smaller animals in the future.  This may be true; it takes fewer resources to make a little animal than a big one.  But they also predict insect-eaters at an advantage.  I'm guessing they didn't read about the insect collapse.  Oops.

1) This is why you need interdisciplinary awareness.

2) It's also why I put my money on the generalists: critters that can eat anything that will fit in their face have an advantage over every specialized critter in a disaster scenario.
