Editorial Reviews


"This volume represents a valuable contribution to the literature on the late Quaternary and particularly on extinction dynamics. It should be of considerable use to conservation biologists and paleontologists, as well as anyone interested in the historical record of the Earth." -- The Quarterly Review of Biology

Holocene Extinctions is a superb book on both empirical and conceptual levels, one that will surely lead to future analyses of these extinctions in new and important directions. This book is the first to provide a general survey and analysis of these more recent losses [of the Holocene period]. It is, at the same time, a valuable and enduring contribution to historic biogeography and conservation biology."--Integrative and Comparative Biology

About the Author

Samuel Turvey is Research Fellow at the Institute of Zoology, a department of the Zoological Society of London. He is a conservation biologist with a principal interest in the history and prehistory of human-caused extinctions and in developing conservation strategies for today's threatened species. He was deeply involved with the conservation efforts surrounding the Yangtze River dolphin, and was the lead author of the 2007 paper in Biology Letters which declared that it was probably extinct, generating tremendous international media attention. He has published numerous other academic papers in a range of scientific journals, including Nature.
