The time is 50 million years from now. The place is the planet Earth. Man has long been extinct, as have most of today's dominant species. Some continents have moved into different climatic zones as a result of natural geological processes, and new kinds of animals have taken over the earth's surface.
Dougal Dixon, a paleontologist specializing in evolution, presents his vision of the animal world of the future, but bases the vision on the known principles of evolution.
Illustrated in full color, in the manner of a 19th-century naturalist's sketchbook.
