Book Review: Singularity Station, Brian N. Ball (1973) | Garry Rogers | Scoop.it
(Chris Foss’ cover for the 1973 edition)
4/5 (Good)
If one were to distill 70s space opera in a decanter filled with SF pulp the result would be Singularity Station (1973).

Garry Rogers's insight:

The Arizona Game and Fish Department ranks the Cuckoo as vulnerable (S3), not imperiled (S2), or critically imperiled (S1).  Everyone knows where this is headed:  The Cuckoo's remaining habitat will continue to decline, the Cuckoo will sink through S2 and S1, finally be recognized as "Endangered" according to the definition of the U. S. Endangered Species Act, and then it will be gone.

 

Conservation status ranking systems used by our wildlife management agencies merely report.  They are not associated with actions to reverse trends.  They could be.
