Darwin studied the geology of the region along Author: Heather Scoville.

When Europeans first explored the Galapagos Islands, a rugged archipelago miles off the coast of Ecuador, they were astounded by the forbidding landscape and Free shipping over $Cited by: The Galápagos are a group of 16 volcanic islands near the equator, about miles from the west coast of South America. Darwin spent months on foot exploring the islands. The specimens he collected from the Galápagos and sent back to England greatly influenced his ideas of evolution (Figure below).

    Resources for Teaching Evolution provides information and links on teaching evolution in the classroom. Developed in conjunction with the filming of the 3D Smithsonian/Imax Ltd. movie Galapagos and the National Science Teachers Association book Ecology and Evolution: Islands of Change, this site is created in association with the Smithsonian. The Galapagos archipelago is located about 1, kilometers ( miles) from continental Ecuador. It includes more than islands, islets, and rocks populated by a diversity of wildlife. Charles Darwin’s book, The Voyage of the Beagle, cast a spotlight on the Galapagos, which he called “a little world within itself, or rather a satellite.

The book is an inspiring call to visit the islands, to experience the animals and plants in the sea and on land, and to join in conserving them.” —Peter Grant, Professor Emeritus, Princeton University, and coauthor of 40 Years of Evolution: Darwin's Finches on Daphne Major Island/5(42).

Somehow, Chin is able to tell a story that spans 6 million years thoroughly and while keeping the reader's interest, even if that reader is a young child, in this picture book that won the /5.

Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. During Darwin’s expedition to the Galapagos aboard the HMS Beagle in the s, he realized that certain animal species (finches for instance) were typically the same from one island to the next, but each one of them had succeeded in adapting to their specific environs in different ways.

One of the features that puzzled Darwin was the bird’s beaks. I notice he has also written a book entitled 'Galapagos Marine Invertebrates'.In 'Collecting Evolution', the author recounts how a team of US scientists inset off to collection species from the island, which could validate Darwin's revolutionary theory of evolution/5(7).

This book has received an unjustified bad rap by people who read it for the wrong reasons. Potential readers should know: this is not a book to read before your upcoming Galapagos cruise (there are books written for that purpose), it talks extensively about evolution and its interplay with Creationism and this is not only for hardcore Darwin fans who have visited the islands/5.

When one thinks of the Galapagos Islands, Charles Darwin, the most famous visitor to ever visit the archipelago, surely comes to mind.

The Galapagos Islands--the basis of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution--are the home of giant tortoises, for which the islands are named. Scientists recognize 14 different types of tortoises, 9 of which evolved in isolation on separate islands in the archipelago.

It’s clearly written and accessible, fascinating for flora beginners and experts alike, allowing the easy identification of more than flowering plants. The Beagle was in Galapagos for five weeks. About one-quarter of Darwin’s notes and field book are dedicated to this location that most amazed him.

During his time on the islands, Darwin was not aware of the importance the archipelago had as evidence for his theory, and he still had no clue of the information he was gathering on each excursion.

Those conversations became the main motivation to bring some of the most important minds working in evolutionary science to the very place that inspired Charles Darwin, the Galapagos Islands.

During the summers of and we gathered scientists specializing on plants, animals, bacteria and, protists to discuss the peculiarities of.This book is a synthesis of both previously published information and abundant new data gathered during extensive recent field studies on Galapagos beetles.
