The Serengeti Rules -- Rules That Govern Life On Earth


Bob Paine, Jim Estes, Mary Power, Tony Sinclair, and John Terborg share the stories of their adventures, and how their pioneering work flipped our view of nature on its head.

Across the globe, they discovered that among the millions of species on our planet, some are far more important than others.

They called these species “keystones,” because they hold the natural world together.

These deep connections also work in reverse.

When keystones are removed, ecosystems unravel and collapse—a phenomenon no one had imagined—or understood until their revolutionary discoveries.
