Ecology and Evolution of Darwin's Finches
Princeton University Press, 1999 - 492 pages
After his famous visit to the Galaacute;pagos Islands, Darwin speculated that "one might fancy that, from an original paucity of birds in this archipelago, one species had been taken and modified for different ends." This book is the classic account of how much we have since learned about the evolution of these remarkable birds. Based upon over a decade's research, Grant shows how interspecific competition and natural selection act strongly enough on contemporary populations to produce observable and measurable evolutionary change. In this new edition, Grant outlines new discoveries made in the thirteen years since the book's publication.Ecology and Evolution of Darwin's Finchesis an extraordinary account of evolution in action.
