Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reproduced from the 1883 edition (which was revised from its original publication in 1868), this was Darwin's follow-up to his , written in response to criticisms that his theory of evolution was unsubstantiated. Darwin here supports his views via analysis of various aspects of plant and animal life, including an inventory of varieties and their physical and behavioral characteristics, and an investigation of the impact of a species' surrounding environment and the effect of both natural and forced changes in this environment. Volume 2 contains the index for both volumes. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
