The Dominant Animal

Print
Written by Paul and Anne Ehrlich

The Dominant Animal:  Human Evolution and the Environment is about mechanisms and processes rather about solutions and restoration.  Paul and Anne Ehrlich teach us how genetics and evolution working over time produced a species (Homo sapiens) that has overwhelmed virtually every form of life and has altered the environment to the extent that Earth may become inhabitable, as least in the way that humans now use it.  If we understand the process, we may be able to do something about it-- a major social/cultural evolutionary change; a paradigm shift to sustainability.
