Einführung in die Deszendenztheorie


THIS is a book with many good points. It gives a fairly complete account of current opinion on the subject of evolution, including the most recent views concerning the nature of variation and the laws of inheritance. Most of the facts cited are sufficiently familiar, but they are explained with unusual lucidity and conciseness. Where authorities differ, their conclusions are as a rule impartially stated; and when, as often happens, the author's own judgment is at fault, he will generally be found to have supplied his readers with material for forming a sounder opinion. The illustrations are copious and well-selected, and the book as a whole will serve as an adequate introduction to modern evolutionary theory.
