Has our obsession with dinosaurs overshadowed other discoveries about our planet’s history? Palaeontologist Steve Brusatte lays out a fascinating alternative history in The Rise and Reign of the Mammals. Thomas Halliday is a Scottish paleontologist and evolutionary biologist whose book, Otherlands, looks back into Earth’s distant past to explore the extraordinary features of our seemingly permanent ecosystem. This is science writing at its finest, chaired by Professor of Geography Jo Sharp.
