Summary

An evolutionary narrative is often thought to begin with Charles Darwin, but historically evolutionary ideas have been with us for at least two millennia. Current reckoning is that there are 14 species of finches on the Galapagos. Darwin landed on four of the islands during his five-week stay (although he saw many more as the Beagle criss-crossed the archipelago).
