Since their emergence from Africa over fifty millennia ago, humans have radically altered the environment wherever they have gone, often at the cost of the animal kingdom. A Gap in Nature catalogs 104 creatures that have vanished from the face of the earth since 1492. Animals from every continent are represented -- American passenger pigeons, Tasmanian wolves, and African blaauwboks -- in the homage to a lost Eden. This extraordinary book is at once a lament for our lost animals and a unique remembrance of them.From the Publisher:
In this fantastic visual voyage, scientist and historian Flannery, in collaboration with internationally acclaimed wildlife artist Schouten, catalogs 104 creatures that have vanished from the face of the earth since 1492.
