Description

The Galapagos Islands have long been at the centre of scientific and ecological discovery. It was here in 1835 that Charles Darwin took his first pioneering steps towards the theory of evolution. This book tells the full story of this isolated island universe, from Spanish conquistadores and British buccaneers, through Darwin's discoveries and post-Darwinian debates to the fabulous expeditions of the Roaring Twenties, and on to the present-day struggle to conserve the archipelago's unique environment.show more
