Anthony D. Barnosky is a Professor in the Department of Integrative Biology, Curator in the Museum of Paleontology, and Research Paleoecologist in the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology at the University of California, Berkeley. “When a paleontologist warns that something very unusual in Earth's history is taking place right now, everyone ought to pay attention," writes Elizabeth Kolbert, the author of The Sixth Extinction. "Dodging Extinction should serve as a wake-up call to the world."
