Biologist E.O. Wilson (The Diversity of Life; Sociobiology; The Ants) has authored two Pulitzer Prize-winning books and won numerous other accolades. His new book A Window on Eternity uses the history of Mozambique's Gorongosa National Park to spotlight the significance of biodiversity to human life. The country's protracted (1978-1992) civil war devastated the 1,500 square mile park, killing as much as ninety percent of its animal population and wreaking havoc on its ecology. In the decades since, efforts have been implemented to restore Gorongosa and return it to its former state. A case history that is also a superb layperson's introduction to biodiversity. Editor's recommendation.
