Essays and Letters: A Letter from Galapagos
Of all the places in the world, there’s no place like the Galapagos Islands. The 19 volcanic islands are relatively new in geologic time with new islands still sprouting. They sit along the equator, between 700 to 1,000 kilometers (435 to 621 miles) from the nearest land masses. The isolation has made the islands a natural laboratory for evolution that not only famously inspired Charles Darwin, but continues to fascinate scientists today.
