If you are very concerned about the state of this planet or if you are fed up with the small talk about trivial-ecology this book should be right for you. Quammen explains scientific terms in an easy way and reveals the actual state of the scientific conservation movement. The history of ecology dates back to Wallace and Darwin and it is surprising how we are guided through 150 years of explorations, research and academic disputes in a concerned but always objective way.
