About this book

In this important and stimulating book, Mayr traces the history of Darwin's evolutionary theories, showing the complexity and many-strandedness of Darwin's thought, and the varying interpretations, understandings and misunderstandings of his theories. Although much modified, Darwin's original ideas remain central to modern evolutionary theory.
