About this book

A reprint of a classical work in the Cambridge Library Collection.

Henslow's importance as Darwin's mentor is well established. He recommended Darwin for the post of naturalist on the Beagle and also encouraged him to read Lyell's pivotal geology text. Henslow's book, like his meticulous research papers and his innovative lectures, included focussed investigations on the nature and stability of species. This reissue gives modern readers easy access to the work of this inspirational scientist.
