Splendid Isolation - The Curious History of South American Mammals

£14.99

Product description

Very good like new condition with little to no shelf wear. With original dust jacket
The history of South American mammals can be considered as an experiment without a laboratory, fortuitously provided by nature. It is a grand experiment in population biology, ecology, biogeography, and other subjects and as such it provides not only an unparalleled number and variety of populations and events with corresponding complexity but also a time scale incomparably longer than that of any experiment in a laboratory. This is the scope and this is the time scale in which evolution has really occurred.
