Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Increasing rate of species extinction in the present day will lead to a huge biodiversity crisis; eventually, this will lead to the paucity of non-renewable resources of energy making our Earth unsustainable in future. To save our mother planet from this crisis, studies need to be performed to discover abundant new fossil sites on Earth for continued access to oil-rich locations. Most importantly, a holistic approach is necessary in solving the present problem of biodiversity loss. This book presents newly developed quantitative models in understanding the biodiversity, evolution and ecology of extinct organisms. This will assist future earth scientists in understanding the natural and anthropogenic causes behind biodiversity crisis and ecosystem collapse. In addition, this study can be of great interest to exploration geologists and geophysicists in potentially unraveling natural resources from our sustainable Earth.

Synopsis:

This highly rated monograph could help save our planet. The author collates data on current and past biodiversity, species development, and extinction, to help us predict the characteristics of future biodiversity, and thus the quantity of available fuels.

About the Author

Rituparna Bose received a BSc and MSc in Applied Geology from the University of Calcutta, India, a MSc in Geology from the Bowling Green State University, USA, and a PhD in Geological Sciences from the Indiana University Bloomington, USA. Since 2011 she is a Adjunct Assistant Professor at the City College of New York. She performs quantitative studies to gauge taxonomy, evolution and ecology of extinct organisms and her work emphasizes on recording the trace of loss in biodiversity, and this has profound implications in biological conservation. Her research interests encompass geobiology, paleontology and evolutionary ecology; and have implications for the petroleum industry as research could potentially uncover new oil-rich locations. In addition, she teachs courses in Historical Geology, Environmental Geology and Earth System Science. Rituparna Bose received several honors and other accolades, for example: - Dissertation Year Research Fellowship, Indiana University College of Arts and Sciences, 2010-2011 - Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Grant, American Museum of Natural History, 2009 - Schuchert and Dunbar Grant, Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, 2009 - North American Paleontology Convention (NAPC) Travel Award, funded by BP Global Energy Group, 2009
