Description
 
Yvonne Baskin (au); Paul R. Ehrlich (fr). The lavish array of organisms known as “biodiversity” forms an intricately linked web. Yet pressures from human activities are destroying biodiversity at an unprecedented rate. Baskin examines the threats posed to humans by the loss of biodiversity. She summarizes & explains key findings from the ecological sciences, highlighting examples where shifts in species have affected the provision of clean air, pure water, fertile soils, lush landscapes, & stable natural communities. Biodiversity includes the complexity & abundance of nature at all levels. Mankind’s wanton destruction of living organisms threatens to erode our basic life support services.
