Extinction. What does it mean? Why does the word conjure up dire events and consequences? In this program extinction will be examined scientifically, along with its causes and importance. The program will look at the emergence and loss of species throughout the history of the Earth through geological, biological, and ecological science without political or religious furor to better understand the process of change and perhaps our role in the process.
