what extinction means for other species

Extinction: Beyond dinosaurs and dodos
The extinction of an animal species always brings finality, but in the wake of the demise of species other creatures can prosper. More than 99% of the species which once roamed our planet no longer exist, yet a rich range of plants and animals survived. In a new exhibition - Extinction: Not the end of the world? - the Natural History Museum in London explores how extinction can have a long-lasting effect on other creatures, and looks at those animals facing an uncertain future in the 21st Century. Take a look with exhibition developer Alex Fairhead.
