The book details the evolution and peculiarities of this unique archipelago, from the formation of the volcanic islands to their colonization by plants, animals and, more recently, humans.
Here many questions are answered in 6 different chapters. Over 330 full-color photos and other illustrations take the reader on a visual journey and show how important findings of the research are for the protection of the islands. A plant and animal guide at the end of the book will help you identify more than 125 of the most commonly observed species.
