He walks slowly by, staring, but they take absolutely no 21 FUTURE EVOLUTION notice of him. France has put its most pitiable next to the sea, in an exquisite setting—these children that in another age would die early, but here will live and in many cases breed, and in some cases perpetuate their disabilities.

After each mass extinction reefs disappear from the planet, and usually take tens of million of years to become reestablished. W h e n they do come back, they do so only very gradually. T h e implication is that mass extinctions, at least for reefs, are highly deleterious and create net deficits of biodiversity. A n d whether we are talking about reefs, rainforests, or any other ecosystem, the reality is that for millions of years following a mass extinction the biodiversity of the planet is impoverished.

Reefs are the most diverse of all marine habitats; they are the rainforests of the ocean. Because they contain so many organisms with hard skeletons (in contrast to a rainforest, which bears very few creatures with any fossilization potential), we have an excellent record of reefs through time. Reef environments have been severely and adversely affected by all past mass extinctions. They suffered a higher proportion of extinctions than any other marine ecosystem during each of the six major extinction episodes of the last 500 million years.
