Aquinas on ‘Biodiversity’

“[…] although an angel, considered absolutely, is better than a stone, nevertheless two natures are better than one only; and therefore a universe containing angels and other things is better than one containing angels only; since the perfection of the universe is attained essentially in proportion to the multiplication of individuals of a single nature.” – Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra Gentiles, III.
