Book review: ‘The Song of the Dodo: Island Biogeography in an Age of Extinctions’ by David Quammen

David Quammen travels the world, visiting endangered species.

The Song of the DodoAn entertaining science-travel book, examining the thorny issue of whether species can be conserved in small "islands". A great read, and very well researched—despite the occasional, unfair dig at Charles Darwin.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
