DescriptionThe website presents a book which starts by introducing the history of life, the appearance of different groups of organisms and past and recent extinctions. It then looks in detail at the evolution of mammals and continues by tackling the concept of biodiversity and its value. It also analyses the effects of over exploitation (focusing on whaling and fishing and deforestation), the situation of threatened living species and habitats and the conservation efforts underway. The book finishes by looking at the rate of human population growth and the potential problems posed by overpopulation.
