Anglais Remarkable Creatures

À propos

An award-winning biologist takes us on the dramatic expeditions that unearthed the history of life on our planet. Just 150 years ago, most of our world was an unexplored wilderness. Our sense of its age was vague and vastly off the mark, and much of the knowledge of our own species history was a set of fantastic myths and fairy tales. In the tradition of The Microbe Hunters and Gods, Graves, and Scholars, Sean Carroll leads a rousing voyage that recounts the most important discoveries in two centuries of natural history: from Darwins trip around the world to Charles Walcotts discovery of pre-Cambrian life in the Grand Canyon; from Louis and Mary Leakeys investigation of our deepest past in East Africa to the trailblazers in modern laboratories who have located a time clock in our DNA.
