Reorganize and expand
This is a rather weak article on insect diversity. Because agriculture, human consumption, and human culture are only tangentially related to insect biodiversity, I have shifted these sections to the end of the article. This places the (sparse) paragraph on numbers and the more expansive one on conservation ahead. Hopefully someone can expand the section on numbers of species.
While I am leaving it alone beyond moving it, the section on Agriculture is not very convincing as to how it relates to the topic of biodiversity, is rather a stretch. Perhaps some of it was written with the hope of being introductory, as it was the first main paragraph.
After further consideration I tagged the section on Agriculture with "undue weight". Perhaps a different tag was more appropriate. But at any rate, the entire section is kind of misplaced and overstated and lacking in sound source material and corroborating evidence. Insect biodiversity and pollination services? Insect biodiversity and local hydrology?
The next section, on Food, is only slightly closer to being on point. People eating insects is interesting, but 1,000 species eaten out of 1 million insect species (i.e. only 1% of insects) is hardly an argument about diversity.
I can accept an argument that the final section, on Human Culture, includes the awe in which some people notice and explore the diversity of insects, which fits into the section on human culture.
