Renowned evolutionary biologists Peter and Rosemary Grant have produced landmark studies of the Galápagos finches first made famous by Charles Darwin. In How and Why Species Multiply, they offered a complete evolutionary history of Darwin's finches since their origin almost three million years ago. Now, in their richly illustrated new book, 40 Years of Evolution, the authors turn their attention to events taking place on a contemporary scale. By continuously tracking finch populations over a period of four decades, they uncover the causes and consequences of significant events leading to evolutionary changes in species. The authors used a vast and unparalleled range of ecological, behavioral, and genetic data--including song recordings, DNA analyses, and feeding and breeding behavior--to measure changes in finch populations on the small island of Daphne Major in the Galápagos archipelago. They find that natural selection happens repeatedly, that finches hybridize and exchange genes rarely, and that they compete for scarce food in times of drought, with the remarkable result that the finch populations today differ significantly in average beak size and shape from those of forty years ago. The authors' most spectacular discovery is the initiation and establishment of a new lineage that now behaves as a new species, differing from others in size, song, and other characteristics. The authors emphasize the immeasurable value of continuous long-term studies of natural populations and of critical opportunities for detecting and understanding rare but significant events. By following the fates of finches for several generations, 40 Years of Evolution offers unparalleled insights into ecological and evolutionary changes in natural environments.

When a ship ran aground more than 60 years ago on beautiful Lord Howe Island in the south-west Pacific rats escaped and attacked the unique Lord Howe Island stick insect, also known as a "land lobster." But more than 40 years later a minute colony was amazingly discovered on Balls Pyramid, a barren 500 metre tall pinnacle of rock just 23 km away from the island. This is the story of how Australian scientists and environmentalists have worked to save it from extinction and, possibly, return it to its original environment.

Changes in climate that intensify drought and accelerate the spread of livestock parasites and diseases darken the economic future for sub-Saharan pastoralists. Already stressed, as industrial and urban development narrow their access to pastures and water for their animals, many pastoralists face a bleak choice: abandon their livestock and their cultural heritage or die. In Uganda, however, the outlook for pastoralists is becoming much brighter. Thousands of pastoralists in Uganda point the way toward a better option: commercial milk production.

Mankind may be on the brink of extinction. This story begins with a family living in an underground bunker in the year 2052, while the world above is in total chaos. Nicholas and his family escaped their home in Denver and are now in New Mexico trying to survive an apocalyptic event caused by an approaching comet. The earth has been subject to natural and man-made disasters never before experienced by man. In the bunker, Nicholas reflects back on the past forty years of his life. He remembers the joyful times and the tragic events that changed everything. He relives the taking down of America by terrorist groups, the battle of Armageddon in the Middle East, natural disasters caused by great earthquakes and asteroids that changed the landscape around the world, and the great plague that killed a third of the world's population. In this doomsday scenario, 2052 Prophecies: The Last 40 Years puts readers in the bunker alongside Nicholas and his terrified family huddled together as the earth shakes violently from the comet's approach. Is it in the Prophecies that mankind will survive? Originally from Massachusetts,
