Darwin And Bears Ch 4 No 6
How Darwin Bear and His Galápagos Island Friends Inspired a Scientific Revolution

COmON Foundation financed the publication of the book: Darwin and his Bears, a fascinating story told by scientist Dr Frank Sulloway.

The true story of how Charles Darwin developed his theory of evolution, thanks to the crucial assistance of bears he meets in the Galápagos Islands. Did whales really evolve from bears? Did bears help write the Origin of Species? And were bears ultimately responsible for the triumph of the Darwinian revolution? Frank Sulloway reveals the charming story behind one of the greatest scientific discoveries ever made—sure to become an instant classic.
