Reviews

"Easily accessible yet thoroughly referenced work...This work is laced with fascinating descriptions of colorful people and places that make it enjoyable to read, even if the topic is sobering...Highly recommended."--Choice
"[Barnosky]... argues brilliantly that conservation biology can no longer focus on saving [ecosystems]. The reason is simple: Thanks to global warming, the ecosystem we work to save today will have a different climate tomorrow."--The Washington Post
"Lucid and thought-provoking popular account of climate change and biodiversity, past and present...an essential contribution...[and] a deep-history tapestry of life and evolution that is infused with admiration, curiosity, and respect for the grand experiments of nature."--Trends in Ecology and Evolution
"Read this book, and reflect on your own views about humanity's place in nature. Then plant a tree, walk to work, and go and call your political representative."--Nature
"Barnosky is less gloomy than curious, able and straight-forward, flavoring his report with a sense of adventure and possibility; by the end of his discussion on humanity's four-pronged problem--global warming, habitat loss, introduced species and population growth--Barnosky will have readers looking to do more than change lightbulbs."--Publishers Weekly
"Barnosky uses a unique approach to address the problem of global warming... Rather than dwell on human factors, he offers a host of examples from the past to illustrate how animals of previous era survived or failed to adapt... In straightforward language, this sensible climate-change book presents solid evidence from earth's deep history."--Booklist
"Heatstroke is an important and useful addition to the library on climate change, bringing insights from deep-time ecological research to help illuminate the dire forecasts of which we're already so aware."--David Quammen "author of The Song of the Dodo and The Reluctant Mr. Darwin "
