evolution for the general reader,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Darwin's Island: The Galapagos in the Garden of England (Hardcover)
This is an enjoyable enough book about evolution for the general reader. Based on Charles Darwin's researches at his home in Kent the book covers plants,barnacles, earthworms, birds, dogs, scarcity, obesity,and much else before concluding with a rather depressing chapter on the likely evoluntionary and biological changes being triggered by modern farming methods and climate change.
I enjoyed the book, but was not captivated in the way that I was by the author's more recent work The Serpent's Promise: The Bible Retold as Science
