Extinctions, dead bears, and heroic beasts

A light week for new Platt publications, but you'll find some good links below.

First up, my weekly two Extinction Countdown columns for Scientific American:

Six Australian birds declared extinct, although some could have been saved

Lack of food drives human-grizzly conflicts -- and human-grizzly fatalities

Next, a question many of us have been asking:

Are E-books Greener Than Paper Books? 

And finally, two book reviews, one for Graphic Novel Reporter:

Beasts of Burden: Animal Rites 

...and another for Mother Nature Network:

'Zapped: Why Your Cell Phone Shouldn't Be Your Alarm Clock'
