A place of exceptional diversity, rapid change, and high energy, for the past 100 million years Europe has literally been at the crossroads of the world. By virtue of its geology and geography, evolution in Europe proceeds faster than elsewhere. The continent has absorbed wave after wave of immigrant species over the millennia, taking them in, transforming them, and sometimes hybridising them.
Flannery's exploration of the nature of Europe reveals a compelling intellectual drama, with a cast of heroic researchers – of whom Tim Flannery is the most recent – whose discoveries have changed our understanding of life itself.
Professor Tim Flannery is a palaeontologist and conservationist who frequently presents programmes on ABC Radio, NPR and the BBC. He is a leading writer on climate change and his previous books include Here on Earth (2010) and The Weather Makers (2005).
