Nearly 175 years have passed since Charles Darwin made Galapagos finches famous, yet this text proves we aren’t done learning from them. Rosemary and Peter Grant have studied on the islands for three decades; here, they show how the laboratory tools of developmental biology and molecular genetics can be combined with observations and experiments on birds in the field to gain deeper insights into why the world is so biologically diverse. Peter Grant is the Class of 1877 Professor of Zoology at Princeton. Rosemary Grant is a senior research scholar in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton.
