Dodging Extinction—Power, Food, Money, and the Future of Life on Earth.  University of California Press, 240 pp. Anthony D. Barnosky, 2014.  

Nothing short of a guidebook for saving the planet; one of NPR’s Science Friday best science reads of 2014; one of the 12 best out of the 200 UC Press titles published in 2014 .

Heatstroke: Nature in the Age of Global Warming.  Island Press, 269 pp.  Anthony D. Barnosky, 2009.

Writing with the eloquence of travel and nature-writing yet also cramming the book with data, he compares the combination of global warming and longer-standing ecological problems to "a wrecking ball breaking down in hours a building that took years to construct". What's needed, he says, is a new form of conservation focusing on saving not only wild lands, but also on helping species adapt.
