Cover: De-Extinction: The Science of Bringing Lost Species Back to Life

Written especially for young adults, yet utterly fascinating for readers of all ages to browse, De- extinction: The Science of Bringing Lost Species Back to Life is about advances in scientific technology to potentially bring back animal species that have gone extinct. A real-life “Jurassic Park” scenario doesn’t exist yet, but projects to clone recently extinct animals, such as the gastric- brooding frog of Australia, are underway. Alternatively, it may be able to hybridize or genetically modify living animals to make them more like extinct animals, such as a modern Asian elephant that resembles the extinct woolly mammoth. A wealth of full-color photography, a glossary, a bibliography, and an index enrich this ey-opening introduction to a potential revolution of the natural order. Highly recommended, especially for high school and public library collections.
