The Beak of the Finch

The Beak of the Finch by Jonathan Weiner

The Beak of the Finch is a non-fiction account of the work of evolutionary biologists Rosemary and Peter Grant. It follows the Grants' research into the deeper implications and profundities of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution as they prove that evolution is a stronger force than even Darwin believed. The couple spend years studying the title animals, finches, on the Galapagos Islands to observe rapid evolution under controlled and isolated circumstances.
