THE DIVERSITY OF LIFE by Edward O. Wilson (Harvard University Press/Belknap Press). A reflection on how the living world became diverse and how humans are destroying that diversity. Told by a winner of two Pulitzer Prizes with a poetic elegance that evokes Amazon nights at the edge of the rain forest and gives us the key to the maintenance of the world as we know it--biodiversity.
