9780691157054: How to Clone a Mammoth: The Science of De-Extinction
Review:

One of Flavorwire’s 10 Must-Read Academic Books for 2015

"Shapiro . . . Lays out a well-articulated argument for the ‘resurrection of ecological interactions’ as the most appropriate goal of de-extinction research. . . . Her professorial voice shines in her thoughtful roadmap for practical decision making in theory-heavy science, as well as in her efforts to 'separate the science of de-extinction from the science fiction of de-extinction.' Readers will emerge with the ability to think more deeply about the facts of de-extinction and cloning at a time when hyperbolic and emotionally manipulative claims about such scientific breakthroughs are all too common." --Publishers Weekly

"As Shapiro sees it, de-extinction isn’t about geeky genetic sleight of hand or about the resurrection of legendary beasts; it’s a valuable new tool for conserving and enriching the global ecosystem." --Natural History

"In this lucid road map for the nascent discipline of ‘de-extinction,’ Shapiro, an evolutionary biologist, examines not only how we can resurrect long-vanished species but also when we cannot or should not." --Scientific American

"As a researcher who is shaping this field, Shapiro is the perfect guide to the ongoing discussion about de-extinction. While many news items and conference presentations have focused on the technology required to create extinct life, Shapiro carefully considers every step along the journey to de-extinction, from choosing a species to revive to making sure they don’t become extinct all over again….Whether you’re all for de-extinction or against it, Shapiro’s sharp, witty, and impeccably-argued book is essential for informing those who will decide what life will become.." --Briant Switek, National Geographic.com's Laelaps blog

"[Shapiro] goes to great lengths to demystify the art and science of cloning." --Kirkus Reviews

"Some of the best conversations I've had in recent months have come about while discussing de-extinction. The concept is simple: should we clone extinct animals, Jurassic Park-style, from found genetic material? How do we do it? What would the impact be on the environment? Shapiro makes it clear that we should have this discussion now because the future of de-extinction is real and coming fast." --Andrew Sturgeon, Flavorwire, from "10 Must-Read Academic Books of 2015"

"[A] fascinating book. . . . A great popular science title, and one that makes it clear that a future you may have imagined is already underway." --Library Journal, starred review

Descripción Princeton University Press, 2015. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Could extinct species, like mammoths and passenger pigeons, be brought back to life? The science says yes. In How to Clone a Mammoth , Beth Shapiro, evolutionary biologist and pioneer in "ancient DNA" research, walks readers through the astonishing and controversial process of de-extinction. From deciding which species should be restored, to sequencing their genomes, to anticipating how revived populations might be overseen in the wild, Shapiro vividly explores the extraordinary cutting-edge science that is being used--today--to resurrect the past. Journeying to far-flung Siberian locales in search of ice age bones and delving into her own research--as well as those of fellow experts such as Svante Paabo, George Church, and Craig Venter--Shapiro considers de-extinction's practical benefits and ethical challenges. Would de-extinction change the way we live? Is this really cloning? What are the costs and risks? And what is the ultimate goal? Using DNA collected from remains as a genetic blueprint, scientists aim to engineer extinct traits--traits that evolved by natural selection over thousands of years--into living organisms. But rather than viewing de-extinction as a way to restore one particular species, Shapiro argues that the overarching goal should be the revitalization and stabilization of contemporary ecosystems. For example, elephants with genes modified to express mammoth traits could expand into the Arctic, re-establishing lost productivity to the tundra ecosystem. Looking at the very real and compelling science behind an idea once seen as science fiction, How to Clone a Mammoth demonstrates how de-extinction will redefine conservation's future.
