About this book

Explores one of the hottest new ideas in ecological theory, that the dense web of dependencies which makes up an ecosystem contains an overlooked factor - time. Most organisms are adapted for relationships with other organisms, or 'missing partners', that are now extinct. Barlow suggests that current ripples of biodiversity loss may thus turn into cascades of extinction.
