Topical issues are dealt with such as the causes of mass extinctions and how animal and plant life have recovered from these cataclysmic events that have shaped biological evolution. This helps us to view the current biodiversity crisis in a broader context, and shows how large-scale extinctions have had profound and long-lasting effects on the Earth's biosphere."--Jacket.
