Accurately detailed, colorable images of flora and fauna from the exotic islands that inspired Darwin's theory of evolution From Charles Darwin's historic visit in 1835 to the present wave of tourism by naturalists and nature lovers, the Galapagos Islands have proved to be a fascinating destination. Once a favorite pirate hideaway, the islands are home to a rich variety of plant and animal life, many unique to the archipelago. It was here that the young Charles Darwin first observed the differences in species that led to the formulation of his landmark theory of evolution. Carefully researched illustrations spotlight 32 unusual animals from these isolated islands off the west coast of South America. Depicted amid the vegetation in their native habitats are: • Giant tortoise • Leaf-toed gecko • Flightless cormorant • Rice rats • Sulphur butterfly • Blue-footed booby • Spotless ladybug • Giant longhorn beetle • Great frigatebird • Squeak bug • Vermilion flycatcher • Sally lightfoot crabs . . . and 20 other forms of wildlife. A fascinating, descriptive caption accompanies the illustration of each unique creature and plant.
