Galapagos Information Centre
Click here to enter the government of Ecuador's excellent web site
exclusively dedicated to answering questions about Galapagos.
An exhaustive list of reading materials, covering a very wide
range of subjects, well ordered for easy browsing. Headings
include ecotourism, Darwin, natural history, birds, biogeography
and more! Our all time favourite (offered to us as a wedding
present just before we left for Galapagos) is: Song of the
Dodo, by David Quammen. This is an excellent introduction to
island biogeography - a very enjoyable read, written by a
journalist, part travel log, part popular science. It helped
us appreciate the process of speciation and extinction in
Galapagos. My husband read it three times while there.
