Fußnote: (Verlagstext) Over the past century, our species has made unprecedented technological innovations with which we have sought to control nature. In A Natural History of the Future, biologist Rob Dunn argues that such efforts are futile. We may see ourselves as life's overlords, but we are instead at its mercy. In the evolution of antibiotic resistance, the power of natural selection to create biodiversity, and even the surprising life of the London Underground, Dunn finds laws of life that no human activity can annul. When we create artificial islands of crops, dump toxic waste, or build communities, we provide new materials for old laws to shape. Life's future flourishing is not in question. Ours is. A Natural History of the Future sets a new standard for understanding the diversity and destiny of life itself. Contents Blindsided by life -- Urban Galapagos -- The inadvertent ark -- The last escape -- The human niche -- The intelligence of crows -- Embracing diversity to balance risk -- The law of inseparability -- Humpty Dumpty and the robotic sex bees -- Living with evolution -- Not the end of nature -- Conclusion: No longer among the living.
