Rating 45 starsResurrection Science by MR O Connor takes a look at current conservation movement and it s possible future This book is written in an engaging manner that doesn t bog the reader down with too much heavy science Personally I would have liked to read science but that isn t the focus of the book The author delves into the history of the conservation movement exploring a handful of species facing imminent extinction via the thought provoking often sad and almost always futile stories of the men and women trying to save these species Each chapter deals with a different species of animal that raises a different uestion regarding the course of conservation and extinction Should species be protectedsaved if it is detrimental to the human community around it At what point does a hybridized species stop being what it was originally If human interference is largely responsible for the differences between a species that has been fragmented are they still the original endangered species How can we protect endangered species that we know very little about What if breeding a species in captivity results in erasing the behaviors that were the defining features of that species Would artificially reviving a species produce the same species or would it be different with different behaviours Is on the ground conservation feasible than storing genetic materialdataMs O Connor discusses the complex ethical issues behind conserving modifying and resurrecting species in what appears to be a balanced manner taking into account economics ethics science and the nature of humans De extinction is the process of creating an organism which is either a member of or resembles an extinct species or breeding population of such organisms with cloning or selective breeding being the proposed methods There is significant controversy over de extinction with critics asserting that efforts would be better spent conserving existing species and that the habitat necessary for formerly extinct species to survive is too limited to warrant de extinction There is also the conflict between natureanimals and the developmental needs of humans in essence determining what a species is worth The author also takes a look at genetic conservation This involves gene banks containing millions of tissue samples of extinct and still living species stored in the hopes that future generations can use the genetic material to bring back extinct speciesThis book is a well written interesting and thought provoking look at the science and ethics of current and future conservation efforts The author asks uncomfortable uestions and raises troubling points that should be considered
