Stanford University Geoscientist, Jonathan Payne: The sixth extinction
Bill and Wendy are joined on the phone by Jonathan Payne, who is a Geoscientist and Associate Professor at Stanford University. They talk about his study on ‘the sixth extinction’, which focuses on species going extinct at a rate that far exceeds what you would expect to see naturally, largely as a result of a major perturbation from humans.
You can find Bill and Wendy on Twitter at @billwendyshow, and on Facebook at Bill Leff and Wendy Snyder. The Bill and Wendy Show airs Monday through Friday from ten a.m. to noon, then from one p.m. to three p.m.
