Sinopsis:

Book by Ward Peter D

Críticas:

The pace of species extinction provoked by human rapacity may well now equal the rate of loss in the great mass extinction events that punctuate the history of life. We need a broad perspective on this most portentous of all ecological and evolutionary disasters-and who better than a paleontologist to provide it. Peter Ward ranks with the very best in this most fascinating profession, and his book should be read by all thinking and caring people. -- Stephen Jay Gould [One of] the science books every self-taught genius should have read this year. Discover Rivers in Time is rich in information and ideas... masterfully portrays for nonpaleontologists how data are collected from the fossil record and then used to test various concepts. The section on the modern mass extinction is superb, and it should concern us all... Highly recommended. -- M.A. Wilson Choice
