A thought provoking look at ecosystems and their importance on land, sea and the Earth as a whole. Enric Sala is an accomplished oceanographer and marine ecologist who could swim before he could walk. He has no trouble throwing out big numbers and scary predictions but backs them up with fascinating studies and first hand personal trips making it easy to wrap your head around the science. His description of one ecosystem off the coast of Alaska not only made it perfectly clear how important ecosystems are to our survival but I will never think of a sea urchin in the same way again.
If you haven't given much thought to the overfishing of our oceans, the deforestation of the Amazon jungle or the loss of some of our wildest places then this book will give you much to ponder. 4 stars
