Anderson, Ted.

This is the first biography of one of the most important and influential biologists of the twentieth century. Almost all general biology texts produced during the past sixty years have a figure showing the beak size differences among the finches of the Galapagos Islands from Lack’s 1947 classic, Darwin’s Finches. Lack’s pioneering conclusions in Darwin’s Finches marked the beginning of a new scientific discipline, evolutionary ecology. This engaging and thorough account of Lack’s life is based on Anderson’s personal interviews with colleagues, family members and former students as well as material in the extensive Lack Archive at Oxford University.
