Diversity

Inspiration comes from the Wired article on the angels share, which commented that fungus live in every environment, no matter how hostile or artificial.

Thesis: single celled or simple life can maintain more diversity than larger forms, with extreme minority variants able to maintain the barest existence up until they happen upon favorable environments, such as a whiskey warehouse.

The general theme of preserving a few outliers just in case. Most of the time they are not god for much, but every now and then they save the species/civilization.
