About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Island life: or, the phenomena and causes of insular faunas and floras, including a revision and attempted solution of the problem of geological climates by WALLACE, Alfred Russel.

Description:

8vo. xvii, [iii], 526 pp., including half-title, plus 2 pages of publisher’s advertisements. With 3 full-page maps (1 hand-coloured and 2 tinted) and numerous text maps and illustrations. Original cloth, gilt decoration on front cover; minor foxing, still a fine, uncut copy. First edition of one of the foundation works of zoogeography. Unlike the broad and general principles discussed in Wallace’s Geographical distribution of animals, this work provides very specific details relating to problems of animal dispersal. "Wallace was the first scientist to use the new knowledge of Pleistocene glaciations to explain certain phenomena of animal distribution, speculating about possible causes of the ice ages.".
