About this book

Examines an important and growing issue among ecologists, conservation biologists, and archaeologists, namely recent extinction of species, and will focus on treatments of losses thought to have been caused by humans in some way over the past 40,000 years when Homo sapiens spread worldwide.

'This book is a must-read if you have any curiosity, fascination, or professional interest in extinctions of the past or present. If you are among those concerned about our environment and the fact that we are losing more animal species each year, you should read this book.' Discovering Archaeology, 1:5 (1999)
