Darwin's Most Wonderful Plants: A Tour of His Botanical Legacy by Ken Thompson English | October 7th, 2019 | ISBN: 022667567X | 256 pages | EPUB | 34.44 MB

But this simplified narrative is inaccurate and lacking: it leaves out a major part of Darwin's legacy. He published On the Origin of Species nearly thirty years after his voyages.
