About this book

Forsdyke argues that the chemical basis of the origin of species by physiological selection is actually the species-dependent component of the base composition of DNA, showing that Victorian George Romanes, who published a theory of the origin of species by means of `physiological selection' that resolved the inconsistencies in Darwin's theory, thus anticipated modern biochemistry.

The Origin of Species Revisited is engagingly quirky. Ian Tattersall, curator, Division of Anthropology, American Museum of Natural History
