Darwin's Man in Brazil: The Evolving Science of Fritz Muller (Paperback)David A. West (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
Muller was unique among naturalists testing Darwin's theory of natural selection because he investigated an enormous diversity of plants and animals, corresponded with prominent scientists, and published important articles in Germany, England, the United States, and Brazil. Darwin frequently praised Muller's powers of observation and interpretation, counting him among those scientists whose opinions he valued most.
Despite the importance and scope of his work, however, Muller is known for relatively few of his discoveries. West remedies this oversight, chronicling the life and work of this remarkable and overlooked man of science.
