How much do we really know about the species that make up the natural world and how they all interrelate? In Do We Need Pandas? Ken Thompson explains what we do and don’t understand about biodiversity.
He asks how the loss of different species, now and in the future, will affect us. Will we even notice, and if we do, what will we notice? What about the rare species not yet discovered? The book questions what we should be doing, not only to secure the survival of the species with which we share the planet, but to ensure a future for our-selves. Closing with reasons to be cheerful, it offers a fresh and fascinating look at a subject of increasing importance.
