About this book

There are many theories about the mass disappearance of species from the fossil record; original theories suggested terrestrial causes, but more recently there has been increasing support for an extraterrestrial cause to these extinctions. This is a coherent and focused review of the current status of research in this hotly contested and controversial area of science.
