A Thousand and 1 SpeciesOn Biodiversity and Human Stupidity

Martin Emtenäs

What is biodiversity? Well, it is all natural life on this planet, of which human beings are but one species among millions. Over the last century, humans have subjected nature to such intense changes that many species have suffered, or even been pushed to the brink of extinction. Every one of these species of plant and animal carries its own history, its evolution into something entirely unique.

In a personal and engaging style, nature journalist Martin Emtenäs teaches us about a selection of endangered species, and how humans have eroded so much of the nature around us – forests, fields, oceans and the once wild rivers of northern Sweden.

Societal changes and our use of natural resources have seen us lose a lot along the way. This book discusses what we have left now. Can anything justify sacrificing biodiversity? What is the worth of an individual species?
