How did life begin? What really was 'snowball earth'? Why did the dinosaurs go extinct? Are we all descended from 'African Eve'? Will humans be responsible for the next major extinction? All of these questions are addressed in this fascinating book. This book presents a comprehensive and well-illustrated guide to the story of life, from the origin of the earth to the present day, written from a scientific naturalist's viewpoint and set against a background of the world's changing climate and geology. Many existing books describe short periods in the history of life - the emergence of life, dinosaurs, etc. - but in The Story of Life, renowned expert Richard Southwood covers the whole spectrum for scientists and general readers alike.
