Otherlands : journeys in Earth's extinct ecosystems / Thomas Halliday.


"This book is an exploration of the Earth as it used to exist, the changes that have occurred during its history, and the ways that life has found to adapt - or not. Paleobiologist Thomas Halliday offers us a vast perspective on the current state of the planet. Halliday illustrates how ecosystems are formed; how species die out and are replaced; and how species migrate, adapt, and collaborate. A surprisingly emotional narrative about the persistence of life, the fragility of seemingly permanent ecosystems, and the scope of deep time."--Provided by the publisher.
