"Over the last half a billion years, there have been five mass extinctions, when the diversity of life on earth suddenly and dramatically contracted. Scientists around the world are currently monitoring the sixth extinction, predicted to be the most devastating extinction event since the asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs. This time around, the cataclysm is us." -- from Kolbert's "The Sixth Extinction" For more information, contact Lynne Hehr at lhehr@uark.edu .
