"What happens when you try to recreate a woolly mammoth--fascinating science, or conservation catastrophe? In Rise of the Necrofauna, Wray takes us deep into the minds and labs of some of the world's most cutting-edge scientists and thinkers to reveal the incredible advances made possible by de-extinction. But Wray also delves into the ecological and moral dilemmas that come with this emerging field, reminding us that resurrection science could bring just as many dangers as it does possibilities" -- Page [4] of cover.
