This book provides a more wide-ranging and data-driven treatment of current and likely future extinction rates than has previously been drawn together in one place. It is directed broadly at senior undergraduates, postgraduate students, and research workers in the general fields of ecology, conservation biology, and the environmental sciences. The authors highlight apparent differences in extinction rates among taxonomic groups and places, aiming to identify unresolved issues and important questions+-+K4739034656006ocn018382739book19890.66Perspectives in ecological theory+-+635035641532455030ocn022596298book19910.66Anderson, Roy MInfectious diseases of humans : dynamics and control+-+859590346532446111ocn040180385book19990.70Evolution of biological diversityConference proceedingsThe final chapters of the book take a broader perspective on the question, and explore the fossil record for data on the origination of species diversity - and extinctions - in the past.

But research shows that the planet's biodiversity is seriously threatened with destruction by human activities. From the depths of the oceans to the tops of rainforest canopies, from the African savannas to the soil underfoot, this program ... reveals the extent of that living bounty -- and the chilling rate at which species are becoming extinct.

The book can also be read as a history of some recent developments in ecology. One of the group, Robert May, is a past president of the Royal Society, and the author of what many see as the most important treatise in theoretical ecology of the later twentieth century. That the group flourished was due not only to May's intellectual leadership, but also to the guiding hand of T.R.E. Southwood.
