Extinction and Evolution

Book Cover Image - Extinction and Evolution

Evolution is one of the greatest ideas ever conceived by the human mind.  In Extinction and evolution: what fossils reveal about the history of life world renowned paleontologist Niles Eldredge overturns Charles Darwin's theory of evolution.  Eldredge's work is now accepted in the scientific community as the definitive statement of how life as we know it evolved here on earth. There are beautiful color plates featuring more than 200 different fossil specimens.  The work is accurate and detailed but very accessible to a general audience.    Fascinating and intriguing from beginning to end.
