GalÃÂ¡pagos: The Islands That Changed the World describes how tragedy and murderous pirates curtailed settlement of the islands and how the islandsÃ¢ÂÂ pristine nature, spectacular geology, and defining isolation inspired DarwinÃ¢ÂÂs ideas about evolution. The book explores the diverse land and marine habitats that shelter GalÃÂ¡pagos species and considers the islandsÃ¢ÂÂ importance today as a frontier for science and a refuge for true wilderness.
The bookÃ¢ÂÂs extensive gazetteer provides details about endemic plants and animals as well as travel advice about visitorsÃ¢ÂÂ sites, diving, photography, when to go, and what to take. Vividly illustrated throughout, this guide is an indispensable reference for natural history enthusiasts, armchair travelers, and island visitors alike.
