About this book

This sumptuous large-format book was first produced in 2009 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the Charles Darwin Foundation on Galápagos. Galapagos: Preserving Darwin's Legacy comprises a series of invited essays under the editorship of world-renowned photographer and long-term Galápagos resident, Tui de Roy, who has also provided most of the photographs. The authoritative essays cover the entire spectrum of Galápagos wildlife including the marine environment, unique vegetation such as sunflower trees as well as wildlife including giant tortoises, marine iguanas, sea lions and the Galápagos finches that inspired Darwin's theory of evolution.

The second edition has significant updates to a number of chapters including brand new photography and information about scientific developments elsewhere and a new jacket. Please note that the 2018 version of the second edition is a straight reprint of the 2016 second edition without any new material.
