Evolution in the Galapagos

Peter Grant, Class of 1877 Professor of Zoology Emeritus, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Emeritus

Rosemary Grant, Senior Research Biologist, Emeritus; Senior Biologist, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

Join Princeton Journeys for a conversation with legendary evolutionary biologists Peter and Rosemary Grant as they discuss their four decades of work studying Darwin’s finches on the Galápagos Island of Daphne Major. As chronicled in the Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Beak of the Finch: A Story of Evolution in Our Time and the acclaimed 40 Years of Evolutionthe Grants have proven that that evolutionary changes can occur far faster than was ever thought possible and that evolution is a far more dynamic process than Darwin imagined.
