Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rise of the Necrofauna is a captivating whirlwind tour through the birth and early life of the scientific idea known as "de-extinction." A combination of informative storytelling and personal journey, the book explores the principles of ethics and morality that guide both the proponents and critics of the idea, deciding in the end that both sides are probably right. "--Beth Shapiro, author of How to Clone a Mammoth: The Science of De-Extinction-- (05/01/2017)

"De-extinction is so hot a topic it sizzles. Science writer Britt Wray braves the heat for a neat overview of the science and its ethical and environmental implications."--Nature-- (10/01/2017)

"One of the most lucid and comprehensive reviews available of the controversial emerging field of de-extinction, offering a wonderful balance of fact, interview, analysis, and opinion. I will be dipping into this book again and again."--Philip Seddon, Co-author of the IUCN De-extinction Guidelines and Professor of Zoology, University of Otago, New Zealand-- (04/01/2017)

"Wray does a tremendous job of navigating the technicalities and controversies. The result is a triumph of clear thinking as gripping as any blockbuster." --BBC Wildlife Magazine-- (10/01/2017) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
