The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History

by Elizabeth Kolbert
£8.99   paperback  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2015)

The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History by Elizabeth Kolbert Over the last half a billion years, there have been five mass extinctions of life on earth.
 
Scientists around the world are currently monitoring the sixth, predicted to be the most devastating extinction event since the asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs.
 
Elizabeth Kolbert combines brilliant field reporting, the history of ideas and the work of geologists, botanists and marine biologists to tell the gripping stories of a dozen species including the Panamanian golden frog and the Sumatran rhino some already gone, others at the point of vanishing.
 
The sixth extinction is likely to be mankind's most lasting legacy and Elizabeth Kolbert's book urgently compels us to rethink the fundamental question of what it means to be human.
