Life Changing: How Humans Are Altering Life On Earth



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Helen Pilcher.

The development of the novel coronavirus that has plunged the world into a pandemic has increased the public interest in the human relationship to the natural world, to animals and plants.

A timely new book explores how humans have, from the start domesticated, and inextricably changed life on the planet, impacting not just our own species but many many others.

Helen Pilcher, former reporter for Nature, and contributor to New Scientist and BBC Focus. She has a PhD in Cell Biology from London’s Institute of Psychiatry and also happens to be a comedy writer. Her new book is Life Changing: How Humans are Altering Life on Earth.
