Since then, every important advance and controversy in evolutionary thinking has had its reflection on the Galapagos. In every sense-intellectually, institutionally, and culturally-the history of science on these islands is a history of the way evolutionary science was done for the past years. Evolution's Workshop tells the story of Darwin's explorations there; the fabulous Gilded Age /5. Evolution in the Galápagos Islands.

Evolution in the Galapagos Islands – A Never-Ending Story. The Galapagos Islands formed from a series of coincidental geological events, making their story of evolution incredibly unique. COVID Ma The president of the Galapagos Governing Council, Norman Wra y, reported that the first four cases of COVID were detected on the Galapagos Santa Cruz and San Cristóbal. All 4 cases are stable to date. 1 case is native to the Islands, the remaining 3 are from by Guayaquil, due to the contact that is maintained with the mainland.   The evidence of Evolution, as witnessed on the Galapagos Islands, gives us a fleeting glimpse of our own collective consciousness, of how we, as thinking beings, put two and two together since Darwin, as if we could literally walk within the walls of the modern human mind.

The Evolution also offers unique perspectives on your Galapagos tours, carrying clear acrylic sea kayaks for 'glass-bottom' glimpses beneath the calm seas, and 'snuba'* for longer, deeper explorations of underwater life. We dedicate the Evolution to the astute world-traveler whose voyage of discovery is boundless and never-ending! The Galapagos Islands--the basis of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution--are the home of giant tortoises, for which the islands are named. Scientists recognize 14 different types of tortoises, 9 of which evolved in isolation on separate islands in the archipelago. Scientists have long thought that new species took a very long time to emerge. This thinking has now changed dramatically. On an island in the Galápagos, researchers Rosemary and Peter Grant discovered that a hybrid union of two distinct species of finch produced descendants different from any of the island’s known species — and the speciation happened in just two generations. by Julian Fitter, Daniel Fitter, David Hosking.
