"The central message of Edward O. Wilson's Diversity of Life is that Homo sapiens is in imminent danger of precipitating a biological disaster to rival anything in evolutionary history. Mr. Wilson...is the doyen of American biology. Two decades ago he popularized the term 'sociobiology,' and generated a small industry of speculation about the biological basis of human nature. In this book he stops asking what biology does to humans, and asks instead what we humans are doing to biology" (David Papineau New York Times Book Review).
