The Encyclopedia of Endangered and Extinct AnimalsBook - 2001
What is extinction? When are living animals put on an endangered list? We start with these questions and then survey the fascinating lives and deaths of dozens of animal species around the world. After examining the mass extinctions of prehistoric animals (including the dinosaurs), we find extinct and endangered creatures in all the major biomes -- forests, mountains, grasslands, oceans, and islands, and wetlands. Finally, we consider what humans can do today to save endangered species from extinction.
