it was amazing
bookshelves: evolution

One of the great classics of science literature. If the grading system were a one to ten, I would give it a ten. Quammen gives a pretty thorough history of island evolution and extinction. It's interesting to note that island evolution and extinction now applies to the mainland because we have created "islands" in our national parks and remaining wild areas. Other "islands" are formed in places like mountain tops. Sadly, once again the science is not very optimistic about the future, but we press on in our losing battles against extinction.
