About this title

Synopsis:

An examination of nature's extraordinary biological diversity and the human activities that threaten it.


· 200+ A–Z detailed entries on Earth's ecosystems, major groups of organisms, threats to biodiversity, and academic disciplines related to the study of biodiversity

· Contributions from 50 recognized authorities from the fields of anthropology, biology, botany, earth science, ecology, evolution, and more

· 150 photographs of key people, animals, and organisms; line drawings; tables, charts, and graphs including the major families of birds, the effects of agricultural intensity on biodiversity, and the number of years needed to add each billion to the world's population

· Four major overview essays explaining what biodiversity is, why it is important, how it is threatened, and the Sixth Global Extinction

Book Description:

The showdown is upon us. On one side, three billion years of evolution, tens of millions of species, an extraordinarily complex and diverse ecosystem. On the other, over six billion people, nearly 600 million cars, an unprecedented human assault on the environment. The stakes could not be higher—for the Earth and for us.
