Author/scientist Ward ( On Methuselah's Trail ) takes a stand on the controversy over whether or not increased extinction of species is currently taking place and what the net result of current conditions might be. He asserts that such increased extinction is indeed taking place, has been since the dawn of the Ice Age about 2.5 million years ago, and will ultimately result in a third mass extinction, followed by repopulation with a largely new suite of creatures. He writes for a general audience. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, more
