This review is from: Species: A History of the Idea (Species and Systematics) (Paperback)
This book is an excellent resource (and interesting read) for anyone teaching species concepts in biology courses or courses in philosophy or history of science. Interesting and exhaustive. But see also recent articles in Trends in Ecology and Evolution on species concepts. In particular, will give you a more nuanced view of pre-Darwinian ideas about species.
