Book summary

Ships from Missouri. (From the dust jacket description). "The Great Extinction unravels one of the great scientific mysteries of modern times - the reason for the dinosaur disappearance. Did supernova explosion in our region of the galaxy suddenly shower the earth with fatal high-energy particles? Was there a destruction of the creatures' habitat caused by some major ecological change? Was the extinction caused by the sudden reversal of the earth's magnetic fields? Or did a meteorite crash into the surface of the earth at a high speed, causing massive atmospheric pollution which destroyed the great beasts? As they carefully sift through the evidence that leads them to the scenario of the catastrophe many now believe to have occured, Michael Allaby and James Lovelock weave one of the most absorbing works of pupular science since Carl Sagan's COSMOS.
