Review “Galápagos” on tour

Galápagos: Islands that changed the world

No scientific revolution is associated so strongly with a place as Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. Darwin’s insights, which fundamentally changed how we view the world, are to this day associated with a small group of islands in the Pacific Ocean: The Galápagos.

These scraggy islands with their fascinating and sometime bizarre biodiversity were an important fountain of support for Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution by means of natural selection. Since then, important other discoveries in evolutionary biology took place in Galápagos. To this day the islands continue to be a paradise for biologists and nature enthusiasts and they are protected as a UNESCO world heritage site. The Galápagos badly need this protection as invasive plants and animals threaten the unique biodiversity of these islands.

This Galápagos traveling exhibition, created by a team of researchers and museum specialists of the University of Zurich, provides a fascinating introduction to the unique biodiversity of Galápagos and the evolutionary processes that formed it. The exhibition, which has toured in Europe and now in the United States, brings to life these unusual islands, which were so important in the history of biology.
