About this book

Beginning with Darwin's work in the 1870s the editors of this work have selected the most important works from the discipline's first hundred years - 44 classic papers - and present them in facsimile, tracing the development of the field. |These papers are considered classics because they either founded a line of investigation, established a basic method, or provided a new approach to an important research question.
