Vanished: a historian’s guide to extinction
24 November, 2017, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pmFree
Over 90% of beings that ever lived on Earth are now extinct – if you’re reading this, you’re lucky enough to be in the 10% that survived! But as a scientific theory, extinction is surprisingly modern. This talk will be a whistle-stop tour of the history of extinction from a historian’s perspective. It will show how scientists have gone from believing that extinction can only be due to human actions to accepting that it is an endemic feature of the natural world.
