The Beak Of The Finch, Paperback / softback Book

The Beak Of The Finch Paperback / softback


This is one of the easiest-to-read, most exciting books on evolution of the past twenty years.

It describes evolution happening before our eyes among the isolated bird populations of the Galapagos - the very finches observed by Darwin on his Beagle voyage - and its heroes are an unsung British couple.

It is uncannily fascinating to imagine the beak of the finch changing in our lifetime in response to evolutionary pressure. . . .
