ASA Gray: American Botanist, Friend of Darwin

by

ASA Gray: American Botanist, Friend of Darwin Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The leading American botanist of the nineteenth century, Asa Gray helped organize the main generalizations of the science of plant geography. The manual of botany that carries his name is still in use today. Friend and confidant of Charles Darwin, Gray became the most persistent and effective American protagonist of Darwin's views. Yet at the same time, he believed that religion and Darwin's theory of natural selection could coexist. A. Hunter Dupree's authoritative biography offers the first full-length interpretation of one of America's most important men of science.

Book News Annotation:

BCL3 cites the original edition (Harvard UP 1959) of which this is a reprint with a new preface. An essential work in any history of science collection. Libraries will regret its publication only in an adhesive-bound paper edition.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Bibliography: p. [423]-476.
