The Diversity Of Life On Earth
From Heritage to Extinction

With 2010 being the international year of biodiversity, this book comes at a good time to make an overview of the state of our knowledge on biodiversity and what is at stake. 

A slideshow (an adaptation showcasing certain elements from the book itself) is here made available to provide an overview of the diversity of life, what is at stake, the major pressures on life forms and what could be done to avoid what many experts predict that will be the fifth massive extinction.

We must keep in mind that: “Extinction is forever”.                      

In this section, you can:
