    Interesting article talks about 8.7 million species on earth. There is much talk in Eastern wisdom about 84 Lakh (Lakh/Lac = 100,000) species or 8.4 million species. What gives!

    After 100's if not thousands of years, fascinating to see the count being within 3.5%.

    I don't know the basis of original number but it is very very amazingly strange.

    When you don't know the missing pieces, how can you possibly say what the final count is?! :confusedkudi:
