Diversity of Life
Author: Edward O. Wilson. Wilson, internationally regarded as the dean of biodiversity studies, conducts us on a tour through time to point out the cataclysmic events that have disrupted evolution and diminished global diversity over the past 600 million years. Wilson shows how the current crisis in ecosystems around the globe has prompted the need for a specific plan of action designed to enhance, rather than diminish, diversity and the quality of life on earth.
