    Story
    (26)

    Today we understand that our world is infinitely richer than was ever previously guessed. Yet it is so ravaged by human activity that half its species could be gone by the end of the century. These two contrasting truths - unexpected magnificence and underestimated peril - have become compellingly clear during the past two decades of research on biological diversity. In his dazzlingly intelligent book, Wilson describes the treasures of the natural world we are about to lose forever and how we can save them.

    Lucas says: "A scientifically-grounded case for the environment"
    "A powerful inventory of a sobering subject"
    Overall

    Wilson has been at the forefront of ecological science for decades. This text however, speaks to anyone with an interest in the outdoors.

    Not just a stark assessment of the extinction event of geologic temporal proportion, also a road map to build on new trends that are at work already today--to pass a functional and diverse natural world on, as it has been given to us in our time.
