Download Epub Format ñ de-Extinction PDF by ê Rebecca E. Hirsch Is it possible to bring back a species from extinction Has it ever been done Will it ever be possible What are the ethical ramifications of doings so These and many other questions are tackled in clear layman s terms in this volume Science lovers should read this book and anybody else who is interested in the natural world.
With the discovery of cloning, scientists were able to bring an extinct species back to life the Bucardo, a wild Spanish goat with fabulous horns, but the baby was born with a lung problem and only lived 10 minutes, so it s the only species to become extinct twice Now scientists are looking at the possibilities and problems of regenerating extinct animals The Mammoth they don t have good DNA but they have enough to build a genome so maybe a hybrid elephant mammoth is a possibility What about passenger pigeons, the tasmanian tiger or even the white rhino which is not extinct yet, but will most likely be soon Some say they are saving the environment, fixing the problems humans caused, other disagree and say they are trying to play God Fully illustrated, with side bars explaining the science, the six chapters are divided into short, easy to unders The Jurassic Park nerd in my loved the idea of this book I was fascinated with the idea of mixing elephant and Mammoth DNA to bring back an new version of an extinct species The book was filled with interesting facts and you don t need a PHD to understand the science behind the de extinction process, BUT the book really doesn t have a lot of examples and success stories De extinction has great pictures and insight, but I just wanted a little in the way of examples A very short read of 97 pages with a full index and glossary.
Interesting I liked the author s inclusion of not only can we but should we Scientists should always ask themselves this question.

Highly recommend for science lovers or young environmentalists This book highlights scientific advancements both in cloning practices and in endangered species preservation Hirsch s book is both accessible and engaging for middle grade readers.
Well written and interesting Useful for student research projects with good source notes, bibliography, glossary, and index.
I m a big fan of the idea of de extinction I think it would be amazing to be able to bring lost species back to life whether through the advent of cloning, genetic editing, or back breeding To be able to return something like an aurochs to the forests of Europe, something like a mammoth ideally a genetically edited Asian elephant to recreate the mammoth steppe, and the passenger pigeon to America to help reestablish the American Chestnut forests of old it s wonderful It would allow scientists to shine a light upon the importance of biodiversity, of habitat conservation, and allow the reestablishment of endangered species by restoring habitats now long lost This children s book explains the above and by highlighting the work of Revive Restore Introdu In The Twenty First Century, Because Of Climate Change And Other Human Activities, Many Animal Species Have Become Extinct, And Many Others Are At Risk Of Extinction Once They Are Gone, We Cannot Bring Them Back Or Can We With Techniques Such As Cloning, Scientists Want To Reverse Extinction And Return Lost Species To The Wild Some Scientists Want To Create Clones Of Recently Extinct Animals, While Others Want To Make New Hybrid Animals Many People Are Opposed To De Extinction Some Critics Say That The Work Diverts Attention From Efforts To Save Species That Are Endangered Others Say That De Extinction Amounts To Scientists Playing God Explore The Pros And Cons Of De Extinction And The Cutting Edge Science That Makes It Possible
