After extinction looks at the future of humans and nonhumans exploring how the scale of risk posed by extinction has changed in light of the accelerated networks of the twenty first century the collection considers extinction as a cultural artistic and media event as well as a biological one. The results of this study which were based on estimated real global biodiversity showed that between 628 and 1078 non avian dinosaur species were alive at the end of the cretaceous and underwent sudden extinction after the cretaceous paleogene extinction event. In the face of this extended sense of extinction asking what comes after extinction is not only to inquire about the future of humans and nonhumans but also to investigate to what extent the concepts origins still inflect current understandings of extinction. After other mass extinctions eg the end permian mass extinction the standard rate of diversification is much quicker and new species are churned out at a rapid pace reflected in a steep slope even after the initial recovery period
