The Diversity of Life on Earth - From Heritage to Extinction (Hardcover)


The conceptualisation of the book started in 2010, during the international year of biodiversity. However, the idea of such a book has been maturing for a very long time. Having grown up in various countries including some of the most remote and biodiversity rich places on Earth, the author has experienced since a very early age the diversity of life on Earth as well as the progressive destruction of some of these ecosystems with significant damages to their inhabiting species diversity. The other particularity of this book is the display of numerous exclusive images of wildlife and ecosystems landscapes. Over 350 pictures taken around the world from the deserts of western Africa, the lagoons of French Polynesia to the dense forests of Asia and the icy waters of Antarctica are displayed in this book showcasing key images of wildlife and ecosystems in a state of change. The art of photography can be a powerful tool to convey key messages. The book also features a foreword from Professor Peter K. L. Ng, director of The Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research at the National University of Singapore.
