Admittedly, Eldredge says, mass extinctions have always been an essential step in the cycles of life's creation-but as participants in the current global ecosystem, we have a clear and justifiable stake in postponing the next debacle for as long as we can. In examining the circumstances, possible causes, and consequences associated with previous mass extinctions, Eldredge attempts to understand how clear the present danger really is and what is likely to happen if current abuses of the environment continue unabated.

The canary's death in a coalpit alerted miners to odourless, poisonous gases but does the decrease in songbirds in the northern hemisphere foreshadow an ecological collapse? In this book paleontologist Niles Eldredge unveils his theory of extinction by exploring the evidence from the first living forms 3.5 billion years ago to the present. The book illuminates the most pressing environmental questions of today such as what causes extinction and are human beings accelerating extinction in other species?

very telling, erudite understanding of the present situation on our planet.

This is a reasonable book for someone who knows nothing about the history of extinctions, or evolution and historical geology, in general. Eldredge takes great pains to describe the phenomenon of extinction (background and mass) in the most popular terms possible. He also tries to inject some humanity into his narrative by introducing ideas and their originators at the same time. This is a game effort, but the scientists never really become more than names to the reader. One of Eldredge's goals is to introduce the absolutely uninitiated to the idea that Homo sapiens is not responsible for most extinctions in Earth history. For readers still hazy about the fact that our genus is only about 3.5 million years old and that life has been around for at least 3.5 billion years, this is a good lesson to pound across. For everyone else it will seem like a dogged repitition of the obvious. When one finished reading this book extinction will definitely be a lot less mysterious, but I don't think it will have been made much more interesting.
