Darwin and his flowers : the key to natural selection by Mea Allan( Book )

18 editions published in 1977 in English and German and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Charles Darwin's Origin of Species, which burst like a bomb on Victorian Britain, he asked: Was the world really created in six days - or did it take millions of years?'. He suggested that organic beings had in that time gone through a struggle for existence - and survived, or failed to adapt and become extinct. What has never been pointed out about Darwin and the Origin, the most important biological book every written, is that it was through his studies of flowers that he put his Natural Selection Theory to the test. ... From Darwin's own accounts of his work with plants (he wrote seven major books about them); from the mass of unpublished letters exchanged with such giants of science and close personal Sir Joseph Hooker, Sir Charles Lyell, and Asa Gray in America. Mea Allan gives us a ...human picture of the man who 'could not tell a daisy from a dandelion' but who ended up by teaching the botanists..."--Book jacket
