Future Humans - Scott Solomon - Book CoverAuthor Scott Solomon says humanity is an “odd species” because of how we’ve dominated the planet — and really modified it to fit our needs. But what does that tell us about where we’re going as a species?

Solomon teaches ecology, evolutionary biology and scientific communication at Rice University.
