They might not survive us though ::(:

 

I think they will, there are deep sea sharks as well and over 150 species.

 

Anyway during the mass extintions between 75% and over 90% of species were wiped out.

When we're gone life will go on and new species will rise.

 

I just wish I could somehow see how nature will look when humanity is gone and the Earth healed.

It will take a long time, but in the end it will happen.

This book is pretty cool speculative piece on how life might recover after humans disappear and leave the world without large megafauna.

It's illustrated like an old Victorian book, which only adds to its charm.

It's $100 on Amazon!!!  I was going to go buy it, but....sheesh.

 

 

There's paperback copies on Amazon UK for just under £40, but that's still a bit much ::(:

It is also based on 1970's biological understanding.  I'm pretty sure that I have seen some more modern takes on the subject.

 

When it was written I'm sure it was nearly cutting edge....  though it could be interesting to see someone do a modern take on it.
