About this book

This major study addresses a key question in evolutionary biology: why do some populations vary so much in morphological, ecological, behavioural, and physiological traits? Through the study of variation and its causes in a single species, the large cactus finch on Isla Genovesa in the Galápagos, the Grants provide evidence that species are capable of evolutionary change within observable periods of time.
