Elizabeth Kolbert, staff writer of the New York Times and author of the book “Field Notes from a Catastrophe”, recently came to my team’s field sites in the Peruvian Andes to do research for her new book “The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History”. The book was just published and she is now busy doing publicity tours, including a recent interview on the DailyShow with John Stewart. She didn’t mention us by name but she did explicitly refer to our team’s work and findings.
