Confronting the possibility that as many as 20 percent of existing plants and animals will be extinct by 2030, The Penguin Atlas of Endangered Species is an indespensable resource for locating and identifying different species of wildlife and shows how human survival depends on biodiversity. This useful reference traces the movement and dispersion of animals and plants across continents, catalogs the inhabitants of different ecosystems, and provides at-a-glance information about vulnerable species. It also presents an authoritative and easy-to-understand analysis of the key environmental issues in case studies that examine the major threats to biodiversity and the measures being taken toward conservation. The Penguin Atlas of Endangered Species is an important and accessible reference suitable for professionals and students alike.

Whenever I read a book of non-fiction such as this - It really breaks my heart to know that it is (Indeed) us humans who are the main reason why so many plants and wildlife on this diverse planet are now on the endangered species list (and that list is steadily growing).

Let's face it, folks - If we humans don't seriously change our tune (ASAP!!) about our endless polluting, our selfish over-population, our tunnel-visioned arrogance, our blindly forging ahead, etc., etc. - Then - You can be sure - What is being listed today as endangered will undoubtedly be destined for extinction by this time tomorrow.

Yep. It's a mighty sad, sad story like no other. Indeed.
