About this book

&i;`Rick Potts elaborates humanity's evolutionary odyssey within the context of past planetary transformations - ancient climatic, habitat, and biotic changes - in a wholly admirable volume reflective of his extensive field endeavors, deep appreciation of earth history, and recognition of the but fleeting conditions evinced by us now in our natural surroundings.'&o; F Clark Howell, University of California, Berkeley
