Description - Terra by Michael J. Novacek

The natural world as humans have always known it evolved close to 100 million years ago, with the appearance of flowering plants and pollinating insects during the age of the dinosaurs. Its tremendous history is now in danger of profound, catastrophic disruption. In this brilliant synthesis of evolutionary biology, palaeontology, and modern environmental science, Michael Novacek shows how we can understand and prevent what he and others call today's 'mass extinction event.'
