About this book

This is a comprehensive biography of Fritz Muller, the German exile in Brazil who supplied Darwin with crucial information for his evolutionary writings after 1865. An in-depth examination of a truly gifted and dedicated naturalist who was forced out of his native land for espousing liberal philosophy after the 1848 revolution that left Germany in the hands of ultra-conservatives - and who is perhaps best known for his discovery of Mullerian mimicry - when non-toxic species imitate the appearance of toxic species. Based on a translation of Alfred Moller's "Fritz Mullers Werke, Briefe und Leben", Fritz Muller: A Naturalist In Brazil is an important contribution to Science History reference collections and biographical reading lists.
