Historical Extinctions: Lessons for the Future?

How many species have been lost? Why were they unable to survive? What can we learn about species' extinctions?

Large numbers of species have become extinct over the last few hundred years due to human activity. Is it possible to work out how many species we have already lost and why they were unable to survive - and can studying these recent extinctions provide us with new information on how species die out?

Organised by Dr Sam Turvey, Institute of Zoology, ZSL

Presentation titles:
Historical co-extinctions;
Historical extinctions in the Mascarene Islands; and
West Indian mammal extinctions - how much do we know?
