What most think of as the animal kingdom – from elephants to amphibians –  in fact accounts for only a tiny portion.

This bewildering range of animal species are all offshoots from a relatively small number of lineages, sharing a common body plan and evolutionary history.Animal Earth not only provides a summary of each, but reflects the latest research on the evolutionary relationships between species – a topic that has been debated for decades, not least because new species are being discovered all the time; some lesser-known lineages continue to defy classification.

Given our technological achievements, we are in a uniqely privileged position to protect animal diversity. As the book makes clear, each species is an integral component of the ecosystem we live in, and we protect animal diversity not only for its own sake, but 
to maintain the systems that keep us all alive.
