End of Eden

Wild Nature in the Age of Climate Breakdown

«Adam Welz has thrown a wonderfully wide net over the natural world, from birds to corals to mammals, in Europe, North America and Australia, to portray the array of life at risk in a rapidly warming world. He evokes wonder, which may well be the last arrow we have in the quiver to convince us to change our course.»

«Adam Welz has thrown a wonderfully wide net over the natural world, from birds to corals to mammals, in Europe, North America and Australia, to portray the array of life at risk in a rapidly warming world. He evokes wonder, which may well be the last arrow we have in the quiver to convince us to change our course.»

Jim Robbins, New York Times correspondent and author of THE WONDER OF BIRDS

«A moving, chilling elegy for biodiversity as we know it … The world that Adam Welz describes is in terminal collapse. The tone of the book … is measured and precise, the atmosphere cool, displaying not outrage but instead careful attention to accuracy in descriptions and analyses. A disturbing and important book.»

New York Times

«Climate change, Adam Welz shows, is already pushing many creatures toward oblivion, and its impacts are only going to grow. The End of Eden is at once an elegy and an exhortation—a plea to save what’s left of the Earth’s magnificent diversity.»

Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of THE SIXTH EXTINCTION

«Welz’s elegy for the natural world will leave you marveling at the intricacies of animal adaptations over millenniums of evolution even as you mourn their rapid loss in the face of human culture.»

New York Times Review of Books

«Adam Welz’s The End of Eden should begin with the same kind of content warning that flashes across TV screens before the start of certain shows. “This program contains graphic images. Viewer discretion is advised.” … it is a book that fundamentally changes us as we read.»

Washington Independent Review of Books

«Welz’s study, which he conceived as an attempt to examine such disruptions ‘without turning myself to stone,’ amounts to a haunting warning.»

The New Yorker

«Eye-opening … A poignant elegy for creatures lost to climate change and a rigorous call to arms against further devastation.»

Kirkus Reviews

«An eloquent, deeply informed account of the unfolding consequences of the climate crisis for all life on Earth.»

Michelle Nijhuis, author of BELOVED BEASTS: Fighting for Life in an Age of Extinction

«A beautifully rendered tour of a natural world on the brink.»
