Quarter of world's mammals face extinction

Nearly a quarter of the world's land mammal species are at risk of extinction, and many others may vanish before they are even known to science, according to a major annual survey of global wildlife

Some might find this interesting: Insecticide! (An ecological disaster that will affect us all)

While the plight of mammals and birds commands the world's attention, insects are quietly but rapidly disappearing.

Gallery: A colourful journey into the rainforest  15:30 18 November

A beautiful book out this month takes readers on a mosquito-free tour
through the tropical rainforest, which, as E O Wilson reminds us in
the foreword, is rapidly disappearing.

Tropical rainforest covers an area roughly equal to the US, and human
activity is destroying an area equivalent to South Carolina each year
- that's a football field per second. Entitled Nature of the
Rainforest: Costa Rica and Beyond, the book is by Adrian Forsyth
(published by Cornell University Press)

The colourful and striking photographs by Michael and Patricia Fogden
that adorn almost every page serve as a reminder of the sheer
diversity of rainforest animals - and how we should be doing all we
can to preserve them.
