Articles
Most people who have taken a biology course in the past 50 years are familiar with the work of David Lack, but few remember his name. Almost all general biology texts produced during that period 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' mark the beginning of a new scientific discipline, evolutionary ecology. This book is a biography of David Lack, the father of evolutionary ecology.
