Catastrophes and Lesser Calamities

The causes of mass extinctions

Tony Hallam

  • Catastrophes and Lesser Calamities breaks new ground, as the first book to attempt an objective coverage of all likely causes of mass extinctions, including sea-level and climatic changes, oxygen deficiency in the oceans, volcanic activity, and meteorite impact.
  • A compelling and accessible account, covering topical arguments about meteor impacts, spectacular volcanic eruptions, and climate change.
  • Examines the evidence for, and causes of, cataclysmic events such as the death of the dinosaurs. Asks what these events can tell us about the future.
