• Evolution and Extinction

Life arose from inorganic matter about 3.8 billion years ago and has been guided by biological evolution ever since. However life has been rocked back, and evolution redirected, by at least five major global mass extinction events. Over the past 20,000 years humans have instigated a sixth extinction event that is accelerating today. This sixth extinction event is again dramatically changing life’s evolutionary trajectory—producing many winners and losers.
